I just looked at my blog history and find it interesting that the majority of my blogs are written months before I leave my job (i.e. most of them are written in 2009 Q2 & 2013 Q2). By inferring from historical data, I probably shouldn't be blogging now because I enjoy my time at work. However, I'm awake at 5am -- I keep having replay images of the bike accident.
|I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, but this is an unforgettable mistakes that I made because it involves my 3 year old son Calvin. Calvin and I had a bike accident this weekend. His right side of the helmet cracked and he has some road rash on his right parts of the body (road rash pictures not show). I also have road rash on my lower legs and arms, and banged my right knee pretty badly.|
|As we approached an intersection there were several cars in front of us. I decided to go around by swerving to the pedestrian lane (dumb!) and somehow, the front mountain bike tire got caught (on mere 1/2 inch height clearance) and *BAM* both of our heads went down first -- I can only remember hearing the sound of our helmets hitting concrete first -- and my son screaming and crying afterwards. It was the most awful thing I had experienced to date, and I caused it.|
What amazed me was that after a few minutes of crying, he he said he wanted to go play in the park.
