dream.20051129: bike chain

by Rob Friesel

There’s some kind of “build your own bike” web meme going around. Basically everyone is posting there 10 Steps (always 10 Steps) on how to build their own bike. For most folks it’s more like “list 10 ingredients” than “10 steps”. I’m not participating per se (I have no real interest in building a bike but I’ve commented on the meme for some reason – – probably it’s DIY aesthetic and all that.) Regardless, I keep getting calls on my cell phone from this woman named Elizabeth who wants my help. She says that all she’s been able to come up with is the bike chain. I keep trying to explain to her that there’s nothing I can do to help her but she keeps calling. Eventually she comes up with some wheels but doesn’t know what to do with those either. Her number shows up in my phone as an 888 number. Every time she calls she just says, “It’s Elizabeth,” and I have to ask her: “Elizabeth who?”
