I'm currently finding typing a little difficult. This is because I had a head-on collision with another cyclist on my way to work this morning. Obviously it was all his fault, though the phrase "just as dead as if he'd been wrong" is wandering through my head. Anyway, the main consequence on my side was an impressively bloodied right hand. After getting to work, I decided that I really shouldn't get blood all over my keyboard and took it to the doctor's. The nurse at Bridge Street was marvellous and spent some time carefully sticking the skin back together before giving me a tetanus jab and some sweet coffee and sending me on my way.
My bike, despite being newly-reassembled, seems to have come out of the incident without so much as a scratch, which is more than can be said for my counterparty's machine. I think I might leave the bloodstains on the handlebars.
