What happens when you forget that you’re riding a bike?

Answer, you end up bouncing your chin off the pavement and taking a sick day from work.
I was nearly home last night when I got to fiddling with my MP3 player. Luckily, I was on a side street with no traffic. I lost control of my bike, over corrected, panicked, got my legs caught in the bike frame and ended up skidding to a stop on my chin. I spent the night with a throbbing headache while seeing very pretty, multicolored stars.
Did you know, bike helmets are less then useless when you land on your chin? I know that now!
I skinned my right hand, sprained several fingers including both thumbs, skinned my right leg, severely bruised my right breast, and generally jacked myself up.
It’s my first bike accident since I was a kid.
But I didn’t break a single nail! You know a traumatic brain injury is nothing compared to having a broken nail; after all, I’ve spent so long growing them out and they’re so pretty now.
Anyway, I won’t be working out today.
