I just got hit...

.....By a car, on my bike. 24/12/05 Merry Christmas to me.

I was riding my bike past an intersection when a car came up a bi too close, at first i thought he was going to stop but then he kept going. I got clipped by his left front side. Went down and hurt my foot quite badly, not broken though, so i dont need hospital or anythng, my bike wasn't damaged, thank god and i managed to make my way back home clumsily (the incident happened not far from home) this was about 2 hours ago.
My bike is fine, that was the first thing i cheked, no bent frame or anything.

So, its Christmas eve about 10pm and my foot is so sore i cant walk on it.

Merry Christmas to me.

Where do you live? I assume over the big ocean..........with that time. I would report it if you got a tag off the vehicle. If not then nurse the foot and drink alot of rum with eggnog!

Oh yeah,...................MERRY CHRISTMAS!

If my foot were hurt so bad that I couldn't walk on it, I'd have a doctor check it out.

Well, im in Australia, so that would explain the time difference.

My foot was only sprained, and i got a blow to the chest.

Merry Christmas
