Ouch

I got in a bike accident yesterday. I was riding my bike to campus and some EFY kids jumped in front of me and I swerved and flipped off my bike. I hit head first, but luckily I was wearing my helmet. I skidded up my elbow, hip, knee, and shin. For decency's sake, I decided to only take pictures of my elbow. Ha. On a side note, I hope that it'll leave a cool scar. Does anyone else always hope that after you get injured? I think to myself, "This hurts really bad, but, hey, maybe it'll leave a big scar or something." It's the closest thing I'll ever have to a tattoo.Also, I hyper-extended the tendon to my big toe. (It's called the extensor hallucis longus, if you wanted to know. Oh, the useful things you learn in anatomy.)

I thought I might have broken my toe because it was hurting so bad. They took an x-ray and saw it was just strained. So now I'm on crutches for a couple of days. I've never used crutches before. My shoulders are super tired now. I feel like Weaky Kneaky (that's the opposite of Evil Knievel).

Sending good thoughts your way. I've been there done that with crutches - it makes you heal more quickly because you're so anxious to get off of them! Hang in there.

HAHAHAHA!!! Weaky Kneaky. I forgot about him.
Oh, and so sad about the bike accident! What did the EFY kids do? Were they sorry?
