It appears that, once again, my locked bike has drawn unsolicited commentary from a passerby. Can anybody explain what someone was trying to communicate to me in this photo? Last time the message was pretty direct, maybe a little too direct. But this time ... I just have no clue.
- Was a local child warning me about a beesnest under the pavement? I looked, but didn't see anything fly out.
- The last time I locked my bike here, I came back to find the front tire totally flat. Have I infringed on someone's special rack, and they've moved on from simple vandalism to mind games?
- The same day I took my daughter to a playground and there was a handmade sign in one corner reading "Here be hornets." Are gramatically eccentric apiphobes on the rise in Durham?
