I never notice... or I don't care, either one.

It's not going to be easy to make a unicycle fit in. I say that because the analogies were about relationships and number of people, not because unicycles are weird! Ok, who am I kidding, unicycles are weird.

I guess unicycles are the black sheep of the cycle family. They're weird and everyone knows it, and few people have what it takes to go anywhere with a unicycle. If you can, though, the unicycle can make any journey more exciting and interesting than a bicycle or tricycle could ever hope to do. So unicycles are the weird loners... the Haruhi Suzumiyas of the world.

Did I just invoke Haruhi Suzumiya in plural? There's a scary thought. But it brings up the point that you can't, for instance, take two unicycles and turn them into a bicycle, or take three and make a tricycle. You also can't add a unicycle to a bicycle to get a tricycle, or turn a tricycle into a unicycle and bicycle. And certainly, if you try to make a pair of unicycles out of a bicycle, you'll just end up with a broken bicycle and no unicycle at all, which is rather a shame, because if you think you can do that, you really do deserve a unicycle.

I suppose one might take from this that those weird loners are usually weird loners for a reason, and it isn't easy to integrate them into an existing network of friends - there's bound to be someone that doesn't enjoy the unicycle. Likewise, it is likely easier to remove them from a network of friends without making everything fall apart. Of course, everyone will know something is missing; those unicycles stand out.


*slow clap* lmao
I effin' love you man xD

Third wheel and me? No! I'm the harem leader that two people gather around.
Fifth wheel? Basically yeah, it's hard to keep four people in check so they just end up having me as a cute doll to play with. Wether they're boys or girls, i'm treated like the pretty boy, or a girl. I don't even look that cute. Just a timid personality. :p

I don't really complain. Except for when i'm excluded and ignored, but that's not being a wheel that's just not being friends at all. And by the way. I've never experienced being a third wheel in a another's couple relationship. Interesting to read that people actually have it like that. I thought it was just a setting in the A-Drama "How i met your mother", among other series.

Most of my friends are either single or divorced. Some have wives and some have girlfriends, but it's only a handful. But I have had this happen before. I never worry about it, though.
