Bikes are a lot of fun. A LOT OF FUN!
Until you fall off and scrape your knee. And bruise your hip and shoulder. Not so much fun.
Life lesson: When you fall down, get back up and ride. Because you’ll look like a loser walking your bike home. But you’ll look cool if you climb back on and keep going. Especially if you’re smiling and laughing. Then the world thinks you’re adventurous and fun-loving, instead of a total spaz.
Update: I only THOUGHT my pride was more injured than my body. But do you know what? My entire right side feels like it has been punched by the pavement and then mocked for being so fragile. Anyway, I’m not smiling and laughing so much as whining and cringing. Yay me.
