Sometimes being accident prone has nothing to do with physical prowess. Sometimes it seems like things just happen through no fault of my own.
Case in point: Me & Ju were riding our bikes the other night and guess what happened to me.
Go ahead…just try and guess.
My pedal fell off. A total of 3 times this happened. Right in the middle of rigorous pedaling, mind you.
And if that weren’t enough. We were WAY out in the country AND it was dark! You see, we had previously decided that we needed to get a little more serious with our biking. No more of this lolly-gagging through the streets of our town, as is our usual custom. We decided we needed to head out to the country where there are lots of hills and open space to really get down to business on our bikes. Because we are SICK and TIRED of being LAZY and UNHEALTHY, darn it!
So we’re riding along and I tell her “My bike feels funny. It’s wobbly. Trade me bikes for a minute and see what you think.”
So she does and she agrees. There’s something weird with the bike.
So we travel on further into the dark countryside and then THUNK! Off flies my pedal! Not just the pedal part where your foot goes, but the whole pedal assembly.
And get ready to be proud because I did not wreck, folks. Believe it or not, I was able to stay on my bike.
After we recovered from our laughing fit, we kinda banged it back onto my bike and traveled on, thinking it would be okay. Afterall, we are two of the most mechanically inclined people I know, so what was there to worry about?
Yeah, so it fell off two more times and we ended up abandoning the mission and went back to her house and played some ping pong.
Our unwavering dedication to healthy living is highly sought after by many, but achieved by so few…wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
