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.
