I love your quote: "if you've never been hit by a car on your bike, it's because you aren't riding enough" Well, I think I've been riding enough.
While 5 blocks from my house on my way home from my ride today. I was track standing behind this black Escalade at a stop light. Light turns green, she doesn't go. I wait a second and right as I was about to go around her, she throws it into reverse and fucking plows into me. I'm fine and after I told her to go fuck herself, I was on my way. Must be tough to operate a vehicle. So many obstacles!
this reader was MUCH too nice, the orphans have voted. they indicated THEY would have surrounded and then tipped the escalade.
those little rascals!
[11:27 pm, cdt] note: i'm on my way to my little neighborhood bookstore, beaverdale books, to enjoy some refreshments, socialize with other fans, and pick up my copy of the final harry potter book. i promise not to disclose the ending, but unlike other books in the series, when i would read no more than 100 pages a day, i probably will read through the first time a bit more quickly.
