    My own personal idahoes …

    yeah, it’s time for me to shout out a bit of wah-waah.

    Yesterday i was hit by a car and the poor bastard was: a) a veteran, b) poor and living paycheck to paycheck, c) had a deductible out of range on his crap-insurance, d) was old and part messican.

    so … needless to say -i took my wounds and bike damage home to lick on my own.

    of course, that was AFTER i gave him about half-an-hour of edu-ma-kation on how to drive his car WITH bicycles on the road.  i emphasized to him that if it’d been a 12 year-old kid, or a 50 year-old woman on a bike that he’d hit … they’d likely be in the hospital and his every belonging at risk of being snapped up by civil law-yers.

    he understood. he felt really, really bad.  he hugged me afterwards.

    .

    and now i go about healing up, fixing up, moving on to the next door…

      Maaan, sorry to hear. Don’t you know you have to throw yourself at the late-model BMWs?

      But seriously, folks… heal up, hope the wounds will leave only a few and sexy scars.

      And cheers to your instinct for empathy. Putting yourself in your antagonist’s position is a good thing and can make the world a better place.

Hernando…Hernando! Definately a highlight of the night….the other was this mountain bike dude bunny hoppin the barriers every lap and this other dude screaming love rants to any racer who would listen up on the hill. CLASSIC cross love!
