I wanted a bike but soon discovered that I couldn’t make one by taking a wheel off my trike – whichever wheel I chose.
I should explain, I was perhaps four at the time.
As I think back, I also realise I couldn’t have made a trike out of a bike by somehow adding a wheel to it.
They’re different machines.
I hope I now know now that I can’t be something I’m not, but I can be who I am.
