Stupid statistics.

I had an accident... within a couple of yards from my house. Stupid statistics say you're most likely to have an accident within so many minutes from your residence. I hate statistics.

I was on the scooter, as usual, this morning and someone in a truck pulled out in front of me. I couldn't stop in time or go around him, so I had to lay scooter down. I hit his back tire and spun around on the asphalt. I lost some skin on my legs and broke my left arm near my elbow--but its a small fracture. (Worst part about the arm is that I can't play guitar. I had two gigs this month and was playing with Louis at Broadway as well. I had to cancel them all this afternoon.) We spent a few hours at the hospital and now I'm back at home with my lovely and wonderful wife who is taking care of me--I'm lucky to have her.

Typing with one hand sucks.

And the scooter is in critical condition.

(PS-PhotoBooth on a Mac inverts the image, I did break my left arm, and not my right.)

Oh my gosh! I am sorry but really glad you're okay. I really sympathize with the part about not being able to play guitar. Not being able to play an instrument would probably be one of the worst parts.

Stupid statistics in deed. In the few years I was invovled in 2 accidents (neither my fault). The first was within 1 mile of work. The second was less than a mile from home - on my street.
