So.. I went skateboarding today. And this, kids, is not how you skateboard, without a helmet, wrist and knee guards.
Basically.. I hit a rock hidden under some leaves and there I went, flying through the air on a downhill slope. Plus I was carrying a backpack so I couldn’t exactly tuck and roll. Anyhow.. I landed spectacularly on my face (left brow and nose) then my knee and elbow took a scrape.
I stood up and frantically checked if my nose was bleeding and if my face was badly hurt. Thank God it was neither but my knee really took a hit. Limped to the nearest bus stop where I called for help and my sis came to save me.
The Girlfriend was really worried and I got a tongue lashing of love from her. But it is all goood.. I am alive though not so much kicking. I can’t help but to be amused and grin gleefully at her being so concerned and worried about me. It’s a nice warm fuzzy feeling in my belly. (:
Now, I have a bruise on my forehead and the bridge of my nose while my knee is fucking swollen and constantly smarting.
So, lesson learnt, either skateboard on a flat and clear surface or wear protective gear, kids.
