Strange MovementI pumpedThree times. The manual specifically said three times.I pulledThree times. The manual specially said no more than three times.A whir.Not longer than a whisper. The manual didn’t mention whirring.Another whir.More like a cough. There were other guidelines for coughing, washing, covering, isolatingBut not whirring.A third pullThe cord jammed but did not whir, cough, sneeze or release.The weeds would live another day.Rick Stepp-Bolling
The segue? How does it work?They say it is from a turninggyroscope, but what makes it move, kinetic energy? A techfeat, that only engineers couldmake move under your feet.I have never tried to ride oneand probably never will, kind oflike flying a hang glider. Would want to but then again I might bekilled. Like jumping from an airplaneor riding a horse, where something seemssafe but it is a risk, of course.
There is no quicker way to feel awkward and small than to move a ladder.It is a sensation that half remains once you set the lean and start to climbAll knees and elbows and just enough fearBut now above the rest, a giant, with gutters waiting.
