I Take It All Back

I'm sorry for every dirty rotten curse I spewed about you. I'm sorry for every monkey wrench and crescent I hurled in your direction. I'm sorry for contemplating throwing you into the burn barrel even though your label says I shouldn't do that, but was mentally delighting in your explosive demise for days now.

WD-40 you are a godsend. You salvaged my bike, I honesty thought it was a goner, but you did your magic and now my bike and I are on the road to recovery.

Sure, it's only taken six days, but I love you just the same.

Joe just took the tire uptown and got air in them. One is already flat. Recovery of the this bike is going to take a while.....sigh


  1. Congratulations! I'm glad you and WD40 are friends again.

    Hopefully the tires will recover soon, and you'll be wheeling around :-)

  2. Glad to hear it! Did you know WD-40 also gets out crayon that has melted onto clothes in the dryer? (I kid you not. If you dial 1-800-CRAYOLA, "how to get crayon out of clothing that has been through the dryer" is the first option on the menu. We shall not discuss how I know this.) The only problem is, nothing gets out WD-40.
