my father had never been to an ikea store before. as for me, my very first ikea experience was back in august 2002, at the hicksville ny store. i've also been to the elizabeth nj ikea a bunch of times. i've also been to a bunch of ikea stores in asia, from taipei, to shanghai, to chongqing.
i figured i'd have to wait another day to finally get out the motorcycle, but my father moved the cars and i was able to get it out. unlike thursday, the bike started effortlessly, didn't even have to turn on the choke. it was still daylight out by the time i rode it back to cambridge. just like old times!
