the giveaway ends this thursday!
and i know you all want this pillow.....in fact i think i might just enter my own giveaway...just kidding :)
as most/none of you know, i started school last week. and i am at a bike school, where almost every single student rides a bike which doesn't necessarily mean they know how to ride a bike. they just have one.
i am still working out my bike path routes in a major effort to stay away from the busiest bike paths at the busiest times. i sometimes bike way longer just so i don't have to go to a certain part of the bike path that is a death hill.
now why do i go to all of this extra effort (especially since i am wearing pants and it is really hot)?
i am accident prone on my bike.
people say that a lot, like "oh ya, i run into stuff" or "sometimes i bump into people" but i full on crash and burn, lose items of clothing, and bleed. i am still trying to understand why.
my most recent accident entailed me getting smeared across a bike path because some dude was just like sitting on his bike in the middle of the bike path. he looked at me, started moving a little, and then pulled out his cell phone.
while still in the bike path.
so i hit his back tire (because he didn't move! he had ample time!) and
like a bird
except this bird lost a shoe and all of the papers and notebooks in her basket
i quickly got up because more bikes were coming my way and realized my shoe was gone. it was in a bush across the bike path. i grabbed it and my papers at which the point the kid looked at me and said, "oh i'm so sorry, i didn't realize you were so close." because apparently i looked far enough away to make a phone call.
saving some serious face, i was like oh no big deal, and with my hands bleeding and both fenders completely bent and my basket hanging on by one screw, i biked away without any dignity whatsoever.
and that is why i will bike longer and farther to prevent that from happening again because it hurt man.
just thought i would share that with you :) now, go have an accident-free day!
