Friday night I fell down the stairs. Well… I actually fell ON the stairs.
Let me explain.
We don’t have a guard rail in our attic for the stairs below and I am ALWAYS telling Rosanna to be careful when she goes up there because it would be very easy to take a wrong step and end up head first into the stairs. Well, I pulled a field test and ended up falling backwards from the attic to the stairs.
Holy hell I’m lucky.
I smacked my head pretty good, enough to make me nauseous for the afternoon. racked my upper back, smacked my tailbone and re-injured my right hamstring. I’m alive still though and that’s all that really matters. I could have snapped my neck.
Later that night we headed over to Tony and Amanda’s for a rocking Halloween party. Good times with our friends. Those two are awesome and I wished we lived closer to each other, maybe soon…
Saturday was nothing but preparation for Halloween dinner. Rosanna made a killer roast beast along with a great pasta/ pumpkin dish as well as a handmade pumpkin ice cream. Add a bunch of friends and a leeetle bit of alcohol and we’re lucky the cops didn’t bust our party. I mean, Greg K almost started stripping in the street. Crazy.
Today was recovery. I needed to slam 2 Excedrin, 1 small glass of water and an electrolyte recovery drink just to stop feeling a little sideways. Ro and I crawled our way to Easy Street Records for a grease heavy breakfast and then it was nap time on the couch. As soon as the sun peeked out I tossed on my riding gear and hit my West Seattle loop only to get poured and hailed on halfway through. It was nice to get back out on the BMC… I think it missed me. That bike is SO damn comfortable and responsive. Why did I even think about another bike?
Shame on me.
