Offended the Wheel god!

Broke a spoke on my way into Fish Creek Park, it jammed into the cogset rendering the bike unride-able. Had to walk 2km back to the house to get the Element, rescue the bike and drive to work.

After work I needed to fill up, after filling up the Element wouldn't start, having issues with the car battery. Had to call AMA.

Sigh.

I'm sure Calvin will say the "wheel god" is, well, God. Ezekiel may agree.

I don't think God is that easily offended nor quite that petty.

Thus "spoke" the prophet of the wheel God...

I remember battery troubles on my car. The worst part was replacing the battery and having it die later because it was the alternator, not the batter that was broken.

I wonder if this makes a good analogy on the importance of "avoiding the near occasion of sin".

At least you were only inconvenienced not hurt (well i mean you were hurt, it always hurts when you're bike breaks down)
I mean it could have happened when you were in traffic, throwing you directly in the path of a runaway garbage truck on a collision course with the c-train that left the rails while crossing the bow river on top of a fishing-cruise boat.
So you see you have to take these things as the blessings that they are.
