For those who haven't heard the "Fiasco!" episode on This American Life -- it's worth a listen: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/61/fiasco?act=1

Saturday morning I went on a bike ride. It did not turn out like expected. Some gravel / sandy snow-melt proved to be the thing I should have been paying more attention to. Brakes were applied, but I was still going too fast in the turn.

The video captures much of it.



Bad news was that water and band-aids weren't enough for the gouge in my arm. Two washings + the campus safety officer at Heidi's writing conference confirmed: I needed a doctor to examine it.

I'll end up needing to heal from the inside-out, rather than having the 0.5" hole sown shut. As he said, "with all of that shredded skin around it, we'd just be locking the infection in." Luckily my knee, elbow and shoulder are all structurally intact and no surgeries will be required. Pain killers + antibiotics are in my future ... as is the good dose of humility that I obviously needed.
