Having been a blogger for less than a year, my family has come to realize that they may be the target of a blog post. Sometimes after an incident I hear, "You're not going to blog about that, are you?" OR " I can see a blog post about this."
One such incident occurred on Labor Day. Now mind you, I would not share this, but the person involved keeps asking me if I have blogged about it, which makes me wonder....."Does this person really want me to share with the world what they did?" I tend to think this person does. So here is the rest of the story....
On Labor Day we went on a nice family bike ride. As we were riding along the topic with J.J. was all about wheelies. He tries to do them all the time. So someone in our group says...."I can do one.....watch."
So we all watch this person do a wheelie and hear J.J. saying over and over:
"Wow, how do you do that ______? That is soooooo cool, _______? I really want to do that. Wow!!!"
But in a matter of seconds my heart stops..... it is quite apparent that this person cannot LAND the wheelie gracefully......and ends up landing on the concrete.... shoulder and face first.
This person gets up quickly saying "I'm fine, guys, I'm fine. See, I'm fine."
But then sees blood drop from his/her forehead and quickly drops to the ground and says "I'm going to pass out." This person is extremely squeamish when it comes to blood.
The interesting part about this is that it happened about 100 yards from a group of "walkers". They didn't see the crash, but saw that we were all huddled around someone on the ground, and began walking toward us.
It was at this point the person sits up and again says, "I'm fine."
And in reality the person will be fine. Merely a few flesh wounds.....one small cut to the eye, an abrasion on the shoulder, possible broken thumb(said person refuses to get it checked out, says it will heal.), and a nasty cut on a finger.
After returning home, we decide to head to McDonald's for ice cream cones. It is on the way that we all ask this person to:
NEVER DO A WHEELIE AGAIN!!!
In my mind I replay the image of a son cheering on a father saying: " Wow!! That is so cool!!"
Then as the father crashes the son says : "NOT COOL!!"
So there you have the latest....."Oh, I can see you blogging about this........." episode.
