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!
