I need a new bike helmet
I busted my bike helmet this morning. Not because of an accident with the bike. I dropped it for about the twentieth time as I again didn't properly secure the strap I was using to carry it.
Not engineered to German standards, it was to be expected.
Ten near collisions
Riding to school this morning, I was thinking about what to put in the blog. I then noticed myself swerving around someone. The near collision, I thought, would have once been out of the ordinary. But now that I have been riding to work for over a year, the number of near collisions has actually increased. I have learned to go with the flow as it were, ride Chinese style and so find getting closer and closer to other riders. I then did a mental count of the near collisions I experienced on the trip to work this morning, and I got to ten before giving up.
Desert Island activities make for good conversation classes. But having done them so often, I am thinking of doing a dessert island class. Would you live on a dessert island where you can have all-you-can-eat Ice Cream.
Hurricane Ida, I have read, has been waltzing through the Caribbean. I immediately thought of an Ida we have working at our school. As soon as she comes in, I will tease her unmercifully.
