I didn’t get out of the gate. She dumped me.
On the grass, OK, for which I’m really really grateful.
I’m not even sure how it happened. Certainly, we’ve got uneven terrain especially between the back and front yards, where I was trying to get her through the back gate when she seemed to just throw me to the right. I rolled on the ground, nothing much hurt but a sprained muscle somewhere in my upper thigh and a little bruised dignity.
It was only this morning that I read The Michael’s comment on my last post and realised what had happened.
Stupid woman, Terri.Now go back humbly and beg her pardon for your arrogant attitude, cap in hand.
Anyone who still thinks that a motorcycle (or any other vehicle for human transport) is a soulless piece of metal – I beg you to think again. I’ve been taught a lesson which, now I consider it, was really gentle for the amount of hubris it had to address.
In other news, I’m pretty damn happy to be seeing the back of this particular Mercury Retrograde. I’ve been cruising pretty well on it, until this morning. I’m not counting the server problems we’ve been having at work as they affect everyone in this company and thank gods I don’t have to sort it out, just work patiently with it.
But this morning – leg still twinging after my little lesson last night – I was walloped with an oversize Municipality bill, delivered really late, for payment in a week’s time. Also, I’d forgotten to pay my subs for the Derrick Jensen Endgame classes I’m participating in. And I’d neglected to keep my credit card in funds, which caused more problems with Paypal….all of which I tried to address this morning before even leaving the house.
Seems the last day of a Mercury Retrograde can pack a bit of a punch. I’m hiding behind a bunch of amethysts for the rest of the day.
Maybe I’ll head over to Beth Owl’s Daughter’s place to give an account of this.
May the closing gasps of your retrograde be kinder to you.
Oh, and in case anyone was wondering – yes I did get straight back on the bike, and went for a medium-long ride.
