Ahhhhh.....I have to really hold back on these, so many times I've wanted to answer these questions.

"my bike died, now what do it do"
Walk, take the cage, take the bus.

"it is making a funny noise"
I'd like to hear it, I enjoy a good laugh.

"it feels different"
You should embrace the differences in life. Everybody complains about everything being the same all the time, consider yourself lucky and enjoy this new life experience.

Pics and Movies are always a great help! Gives me time to think and get my smart ass in check!
Peace,
