succumbing to peer pressure

Saturday, April 08, 2006

I wiped out on my bike yesterday. I'm fine - it was an embarrassing display of my typical grace and coordination. I had already stopped the bike and was attempting to get off it, walk over to the bike rack, and lock it up, when my foot got caught on my back wheel, toppling bike and me over into some bushes. What was weird is that this happened right in front of several people, not one of whom asked if I was ok. Initially, I was relieved, since my ego was more bruised than my body, but after thinking about it a minute, I was sort of surprised. I mean, I did a full on face plant, ker-splat! flat on the ground, and no one even pauses?
