Speaking of motorcycles

Today I went to start the bike up and most of the electrical system seems to be offline. The headlight works, but the turn signals, brake lights, and instrument displays (all the -ometers and the “idiot lights” that tell me when I’m in neutral or low on gas) are nonfunctional. So I won’t even be taking the damn thing to this wedding tomorrow in Connecticut.

Also, it occurs to me just now that I can remember how to spell Connecticut but I still have a hard time spelling Massachusetts, despite living here for six years.
