New experiences

Falling off stairs while pushing bike up same: achievement unlocked, as James Davis Nicoll would say. The good part was that I landed on earth, not concrete; the bad is that I banged the left side of my body on next door's steps as I fell; the good is that next door has wooden steps. So some stunning bruises, but the one major pain is a muscle in spasm above one of my ribs. Same one that got sent into spasm 20 years ago during a coughing fit, which argues a structural weakness. How lucky I have muscle relaxants and heating pads and not much in the way of work tomorrow and Friday.

That bicycle hates me anyway. Loves to faint gracefully and fall to the ground no matter how I lock it, and will even do it when I'm holding it upright. And gash my leg as it collapses if it possibly can.
