I am the grit in the gears, the missing bolt, I am the poker of sticks into spokes.
I like to know how things work, but sometimes when I take them apart and rebuild them, I have a few pieces left over.
I am a man, so I tend to leave reading the instructions until after it goes wrong.
And like all men I have a comprehensive mental map of the world and never need to ask directions.
I never get lost, only sometimes I'm late, or end up in the wrong place entirely.
It's what we do.

Amazing, Isn't it, that you can get 900 of them in such a small carton.
(Nice to know they're recyclable).
And that the instruction manual is unfathomably translated from mandarin.
The page for 'mapreading' is missing, but 'shoes' is a fifty-page pull-out,
