Someone wrote a story about touching Bryan Anderson?
Why were they touching Brian?

So I am riding my bike home after doing some more volunteer work at the bicycle co-op and I decide to ride a more relaxed pace that normal. Mostly because I felt like crap anyway. While ascending from the bottom of the hill I saw a person slam their bicycle into the triangular median and take a head first dive onto the pavement. No bracing with his hands or anything, just a head first dive onto the pavement. I then sprint up to him thinking this could be bad. Once I get my own bike situated I helped him up and proceed to check him for a concussion in the most unobtrusive way possible.
Since no good deed goes ever unpunished, and I had been trying not to laugh the entire time, since the guy had basically face planted right in front of me. While I was wrapping up our conversation, I had a petite seizure. I can’t talk while having these and I only have limited motor function. At this point my new best friend decided he wanted a hug and thank me for stopping to help him. At that point I really just wanted to stand there for a second wait for my head to clear, and then go home.

I think that must have been a blessing. Thank God you did not have that seizure while riding...you could have easily drifted into traffic.
BTW, have you figured out any triggers yet?

Yes, but if it had been a young lady doing the hugging, would you have minded?

You still did a good thing in stopping and checking, so we will give you a virtual hug which you can appreciate any time!
