i fell off my bike...

So last night Tim and I biked around Lake Calhoun a couple times and then got some ice cream. It was dark by the time we rode home. We were about 3 blocks from our house and were riding on the sidewalk near the old Honeywell building. Well, the sprinklers were on and I was too busy looking at them to notice where I was going (b/c I thought they were pretty) and I ran into a pole. I hit it with my right handle bar, my bike went one way and I went the other. Tim was mortified when he saw me in a heap on the sidewalk, but I was so embarassed that all I could do was laugh!

I have a few scrapes and I'm limping around due to a swollen ankle, but other than that all that is truly damaged in my pride.

Can you imagine? A grown woman looking at silly sprinklers runs into a pole on her bike. Ridiculous!

I had a nasty bike accident last summer. I stopped in front of Jake b/c I saw cash on the ground. For the record, it looked like $20. (In reality, it was only $2.) Well, it was dusk, Jake didn't see me stop and CRASH - he ran right into me. I ripped my shorts, had road rash, bent handlebars, etc. But like you, couldn't help but laugh at it all. My bike still isn't fixed - ha!

Guess we might have to scrap the walk on Wednesday, huh?
