You sing along to Queen doing "I want to ride my bicycle" but change the lyrics to "I want to ride my unicycle".

Haven't done that one but I have ridden along to a version of Arlo Guthrie's "Motorcycle Song":

I don't want a pickle
Just want to ride on my unicycle
And I don't want a tickle
'Cause I'd rather ride on my unicycle
And I don't want to die
Just want to ride on my unicy--

You are touring a beautifully preserved mideval castle and describe it as "unicyclable".

When you can't sing this without imagining a 36er:

Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
Rolling
Rolling
Rolling on the river.

When youre driving for two hours to a destination and come up to huge rolling hills with the utmost stunning slopes and curves you had ever seen. Your mind begins to drift away on your one wheeler, and in the distant you begin to hear a voice, almost as if it were important.

In a flash, you're done with the downhill and find yourself behind another wheel saying, "Uh, what hunny?, you were saying something?"

you take one of your unicycles as your only checked piece of luggage on a vacation almost 5,000 miles away from home.

Will be posting pictures soon.

other option: you buy remotely a unicycle through the internet to get one when you arrive 5,000 miles from home. You give it to someone (for learning) when leaving.
(this said I will probably not do that next time I am able to go to Moab )

There are no "mediaeval castles" in the US, unless they have been exported from the Europe or are from the 1950's! Surely?

When your morning ritual involves getting on Craigslist and typing in "unicycle."

Seriously, I do it every day. There's one guy in my area who keeps trying to sell a Sun Flat Top 20" for $50 and I keep trying to talk him down to $30. Do I need a Sun Flat Top? Absolutely not.

At this point it's become such a personal challenge to get him to sell it for $30 that I have friends making super lowball offers on it, and I'm texting him from about five different Google Voice numbers with more super lowballs to make my actual offer look good by comparison.

Anybody who claims to have spent over $200 on a Sun probably hasn't ever found their way to a unicyclist forum.
