Yesterday's biking fall may have been a clue that this week was going to be a rough one, or that I should stay home and avoid any pavement whatsoever.
On my walk to school today, 1 block from school, I entered the intersection to cross the street, in a crosswalk, while I had the white walk symbol, and a car turning didn't see me. It happened very quickly and my initial thought was that she wasn't going to stop. As I quickly moved to get out of the way, she braked and tires screeched as she came to a stop about 4 inches from my left side. She stayed stopped and rolled down her window and kept apologizing, all the while holding her cell phone up to her ear. After assuring her I was okay, my emotions ran high and I went off on her. In the middle of it, I burst into tears. Happy Tuesday to me.
What else is in store for me this week?
Hopefully the amount of work I have to do will keep me indoors, away from my broken bike and crazy drivers. Either that or I should walk around like the little boy in Little Giants who has his entire body padded to keep from getting hurt.
