Another Bike Accident

I was cycling yesterday after work to train for the triathlon when a car made a left turn right in front of me. I squeezed the brakes real hard and flipped over on my bike. The car just took off. I kissed the ground. At first I thought my face had road rash on it, because it felt like it. I just have road rash on my arms, elbows, knees, and fingers. When I got home, I looked in the mirror and my face was okay, fortunately, because I wouldn't want to ruin this beautiful face. I just had dirt on my nose and lips and chin from kissing the dirt.

My front bike wheels need to be trued, because it's slightly bent. I need new brakes and my gears need a major tune-up 'cuz they're jacked up.

Damn you crazy drivers!

Thank goodness I have 9 lives. I think I've used them all up by now. Hopefully, this won't be my last. I need to collect some more 1-ups.

Another weird thing happened at work yesterday. All three toilets at my office floor were flooded. They were filled to the brim with brown liquid crap and the floors were flooded. Someone must have had diarrhea and clogged the toilets with too much toilet paper. I went all the way downstairs to use the restroom and found that everyone was using the toilets there pooping too. Since I don't have access to any of the other floors, I had to go all the way to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel to use the restroom. All the other office buildings around me require their own keycards to get through the buildings. Dang people! Don't put too much t.p. in the toilets!!

You can't seem to get away from lousy drivers out there. And the boldness to just drive off, which also doesn't seem to be unique. How fortunate that you're alright! I hope the rest of your training goes without incident:)

I've got road rash on my arms, elbows, and fingers that will probably scar me. Other than that I'm okay. It truly is very dangerous out there on the road. I must be crazy to do this all the time. I guess it's because I love riding my bike so much I'm willing to risk my life every day.
