While visiting my cousins in Massachusetts one summer, we were outside playing when my younger cousin, Tom, took a ride on his bike. He was wearing long jeans and got the pant leg caught in the bike chain. As hard as we tried, we couldn't free him from the chain. We tried to push him on the bike so we could get closer to his house, but that didn't work. Finally, we ran to get his mother and tell her what happened. She gave us a pair of scissors and told us to cut the pants. We got Tom free, but he was not at happy about having to sacrifice his favorite pair of pants.
