Gah! Grease spill!

I very nearly went down not 20 minutes ago, some 3-4 blocks from work, because of a stupid @#$%ing grease spill. I am out of the saddle flying up Bedford Ave in Brooklyn when suddenly my rear wheel goes off to the right. I swear it felt like half the bike went horizontal. Thank goodness for good bike handling and lots of practice losing traction on wet leaves on a local hill were I live, because I managed to stay upright. Phew!!!

Wet leaves on inclines, God's little way of checking that you are concentrating when in the saddle
