Tee hee, love the lawyer jokes. Note to self: Remember jokes to annoy friends in law school...Hope they remain friends after passing bar.
I am riding again, but I can't race this summer.
I'm going to take it easy--cross-train w/ running and yoga, and see how injuries heal. Maybe try racing again next season. I'm lucky to be riding at all!
I didn't see this as an opportunity to make piles of money, but everyone I knew advised me to get a lawyer, so I did. Then I found out that some of the broken bones in my back never healed and will probably hurt for a long, long time. I couldn't help but begin to feel vindictive and entitled.
But not being much of a fan of our litigious (is this a word?) society, I've felt weird about having an attornery from the get-go. I got very angry at him at one point and did ask for the billable hours, which served to freak them out and get serious about settling everything, and also served to make me feel assertive, especially when I had to tell the guy not to interrupt me when I was talking.
Have considered a civil suit, but the guy has even less than I do--not sure how good I'd feel about that.
Shifty, I will try to enjoy that patch kit. After all, I do love the celeste blue of the boxes they come in, and they're useful for toting around all sorts of things, in addition to patches.
