The Trickle - Lost and Found
March 18, 2014 - Brian Ferry
I'm not writing about potholes.
I don't like them and I've written enough about them this winter season.
However, I am writing about the results of potholes.
There are some champions around and when I hit them at a speed that is responsible for the rest of the road surface, I feel like my tires are going to explode and my rims are going to fold up.
Neither of those things has happened yet.
However, on a recent Monday, a pothole clobbered by passenger side during my trip to work.
Later that day, I noticed that I had lost a wheel cover.
I scouted for it on my way home.
I saw a cover sitting against the signal post at Fourth and Market, so I pulled over. It turns out it wasn't mine.
So, I drove on, scanning along the street. Nothing.
Well, the next day, I'm driving to work and I take care to miss those same potholes. Then, I turn my eyes to the side of the road and see my wheel cover. I was in a hurry to get to the courthouse. I figured nothing would happen to that thing in the hour or two that would pass before I could return. I was right.
I mentioned to someone at the courthouse that I would be walking over to get my wheel cover. She asked if the one in the courthouse lawn was mine. I said no.
So, that's three wheel covers in the stretch of about two blocks.
When I went back, I found mine in the lawn in front of the Crary Art Gallery.
Good news for me.
Then I slapped it back on and didn't see anything wrong with the rim.
