Had a really bad wipeout while riding a scooter today.  Knocked the wind out of me and banged up an elbow and knee pretty bad.  Two cars stopped to help me while I was laying on the street.

It was amazing that I didn't hit my head and I wasn't wearing a helmet.  I will never  ever ride a bike or a scooter again without wearing a helmet.  I may not get another chance.  I cried about 30 minutes later thinking how terrible it would have been if I had hit my head on the pavement.

The really creepy thing is about 3 seconds before I hit the rock that caused the wipeout, I had a premonition of falling and thought to myself "who would I call if I fell and hurt myself" ?  I glanced up the street to look for big cracks and that's when I hit the rock.

Lesson learned.  I will always wear a helmet from now on.

That is awful! I hope you recover fully.

Good reminder -- I have been riding a bike to and from the metro at work, without a helmet. No more.

Love and miss you guys -- H.
