Everyone's A Critic

Yesterday morning on my way to work, I made the sudden acquaintance of an SUV's bumper . The driver had pressing business off to his left somewhere, and did not find it necessary to look where he was going. 

Anyway, he ran over my bike, which is better than if he had run over my head. I am banged up and sore but not seriously hurt. I guess he objected to my choice of a two-wheeled lifestyle and took a moment to pray for me. It worked, as I immediately took up a new lifestyle on the fucking pavement. Or maybe he just hates bicyclists or poets. Or bloggers.

It wasn't an attempted hit by me, I swear. Yes, I am a bit green with envy--every single day--over your writing talent, but would never go to extremes like that.

Seriously, Shay. I'm glad you are okay (right?) but what about your bike? Is it totaled?

Oh my God, how horrible! You just healed from your shoulder and could have been really seriously hurt. At the very LEAST, I CERTAINLY hope he will replace your bike!!!!!!!!! That so sucks!

Wow. I'm so glad you are relatively unhurt.

Helen said...

Jesus! How can you make something so serious ~ so funny? Glad you were not seriously hurt. Be careful out there, you do wear a helmet ... yes?

So many uncaring idiots out there, Shay. Hope you're ok! We need you at your best because it elevates our skill set.

Hope he replaces your bike!
