Thursday 20 February, 2014 : The bike incident

I feel invisible and so unwelcome here.  It was inevitable that there would be days like this.  I just want to crawl back into bed and hug the life out of the kid.

After nagging Dave to make sure he looked out for bikes, I stupidly crossed the street without looking.  Some poor chick had to brake suddenly and she came off her bike.  I apologised and kept going – I didn’t need to have a conversation about what I’d done wrong.

We see bike accidents here all the time.  They have right of way EVERYWHERE.

In my defence, I was standing on the kerb, the pedestrian light went green, I walked – I didn’t realise, however, that there was a bike lane between me and the road.
