A couple of nights ago I was walking on the path through the park to the library. A little boy was hunched over his bicycle while two girls stood over their bikes, clearly waiting for him. As I approached I asked:
“Do you need any help?”
“My chain fell off. I think it’s twisted.”
A quick look at it revealed that it had just fallen off the sprocket. Within a few seconds I had put the chain back on and the boy was on his way, thanking me as he rode off.
I loved that I was able to be there at the right time – and to be my favourite superhero: “Bicycle Repairman”
I realized that a lot of little moments happen in my life: things I see, hear, or do. While they don’t warrant a full entry, I did want to share them, thus this new post category was born.

That’s awesome that you were there and able to help. I’m surprised the kid let you though.
He was pretty young (about the age of the kid in the stock photo I found above) and seemed to be completely unsure how to fix things. I think he was going to have to walk it home if it wasn’t fixed.
Excited to read more “moments” posts!! I never knew there was a bicycle repair man LOL.
