Legend of the Bell

John got this bell as a gift from my mom. At first we thought it was a key chain, but turns out there's a legend behind it.....

 

"As we all know, life has many mysteries that have no apparent solutions. One of these is Evil Road Spirits. They are little gremlins that live on your bike. They love to ride. They're also responsible for most of your bike's problems. Sometimes your turn signals refuse to work, or the battery goes dead.

 

Road Spirits can't live in the presence of a bell. They get trapped in the hallow of the bell. Among other things, their hearing is super sensitive. The constant ring of the bell and the confined space drives them insane. They lose their grip and eventually fall to the roadway. (Have you ever wondered how potholes are formed?) The bell has served its purpose.

 

If you have picked up a bell of your own, the magic will work. But if your bell was given to you, the power has been doubled, and you know that somewhere you have a special friend helping to look after you".

   

Thanks, Mom!
