Not really a view from my saddle, more like from my desk at work.
A friend came by to show me his arm.
I agreed not to use his name. He had been riding the sidewalks in his neighborhood and a metal bar that was sticking out caught his handlebars and he crashed. The break was not found on the first set of x-rays. He is post-op now.
Based on Jan’s similar experience in 2004 [she was avoiding poison ivy that was reaching out to grab her] I told him that the rehab would be painful and that he would find out what he was made of.
