Well, I just got a new bike for my birthday. My mom and step-mom wanted me to have a quicker way to get three miles down to my new job. Curse my 14 year old age and lack of money to buy a decent electric scooter. Anyway, I was hanging out with some friends and my brother and we all brought our bikes. We stopped off at Taco Bell, one of our 4 hang out spots. We usually go either there then a park, or a REAL Mexican restaraunt and then a different park. Getting off topic again. We rode out of the parking lot and back into the next one to get some ice cream. I was peddling pretty fast and out of nowhere one of the pedals stripped out of its place, causing all my weight to fall to the black pavement. I didn’t get hurt to bad, but I was stuck layin’ in bed the rest of the day playing Kingdom Hearts II because my hip hurt pretty bad. Well, anyway we got the bike replaced and all is good…aside from the ugly scrape on my elbow that doesn’t seem to be healing properly.
