on the way to work this morning, in the snarling traffic of the longwood medical area (boston people will know what im talking about).
get this - i was accelerating from a light, and BAM, a tiny fucking UNLEASHED lapdog, screams across the OTHER side of the road, directly into traffic and in front of my 100% dead mint 77 moby. no joke - i think it was actually trying to attack me. i had no time to react, slammed on the breaks, and basically went over the bars. nice road rash and a fucked up arm ensued. spent 6 hours in the er today.
my bike isnt terrible, but the front light housing is smashed, a pedal arm is bent, the bars are slightly weird and my precious, incredibly nice seat is torn. the lady was a little shocked.
oh well. kevlar gloves saved my hands (buy them if you dont have them). my arm is pretty nasty, and my wrist is kind of fucked up. but otherwise i survived.
i guess you never know where "its" going to come from, but the moral of the story is i valiantly saved the retarded dog at the expense of my right arm and my moped.
