40 mph or Why You Should not Speed on a Scooter


Well folks, my haphazard klutziness has gotten me once again. How you ask? I was driving a friend's scooter (with Dave on the back) and crashed into a curb. Going 40. Wearing flip flops.

The damage? A couple inches of skin missing, road rash, busted nose, and baseball size bruises. You want pictures? No you don't. My foot looks like something from a horror film. Just image gross. Dave has a pretty deep cut on his leg and some road rash on his foot. Good thing he landed on me though, because I was his airbag.

Oh and the worst part? Scrubbing out the asphalt with a toothbrush and hydrogen peroxide. Ooooooooouuuuu to the ch.

Oh no!!! I have avoided scooters ever since I lost a few layers of skin off my big toes and avoid hitting a very nice Lexus by just millimeters.
I wish you a speedy recovery!!!

Yikes! Spence was wearing flip flops and ate it while riding his bike on campus at Purdue. He practically took off the knuckle of his big toe. Yours must be so much worse! I hope you heal up quickly!

OOH! Jess I'm so sorry. That sucks! Especially since your trying to move besides. Best of luck to you and Dave. Heal quickly.

Is it mean that I wish I could see this happening? Like on youtube or something...

Either way, I hope you both are feeling better!

Are you serious? You and Dave are in charge of the "show and tell" entertainment at our next gathering.
