It was love at first sight. 
I heard about all the madness that was surrounding the launch last Tuesday of Missoni for Target.  The Italian fashion house had paired with the retail giant to create a line of inexpensive Missoni designer products.

As I perused the Missoni area on the "Bicycles and Luggage" section caught my eye.  I clicked on it and then I fell.  Hard.

There was the most striking bike I had ever seen.  (Yes, I know I have simple taste.)  But I just loved the black and white zigzag pattern.  And I swooned over the cream-colored tires, seat and grips. It even had the basket I demand.

Holding my breath, I checked availability. Lo and behold, there was one left at the Target just up the street.

At 9:35 p.m. I raced up to Target and scrambled back to the bike section in the furthest corner of the store.  I looked up at the rack of bikes hanging from the wall and there it was.  

At that very moment, I knew I was going to take that bike home and ride it for the rest of my life.  Till death do us part.
