I'm guessing this was on the perambulator, but still... lost an axle? Wha?

Whew, good thing Axle isn't the child's name! ;-)

I think that would be Axel...

(A friend of mine once had a student whose mother couldn't spell very well, and named her daughter Angle. But pronounced Angel.)

It's a small axle, like this.

I prefer Aksel.

If one of those goes missing, isn't it kind of a show-stopper? Or do you have four wheels and can manage on three?

(At least it wasn't Axl).

Sometimes, when I type too fast, my name comes out as Axle. Or, more often, Aelx.

Yep, it's a 3-wheeler, so we aren't getting very far with an axle missing. Luckily we had a carrier with us so we each just wore him while the other ran. It was the best day for this to happen since the parking was very close to the arena and the races were short (sprints). It also meant we were very careful about counting parts the rest of the weekend.
