Recently I suffered a broken leg as a result of an accident involving a car. I am now back at work and getting around on crutches. But geez, I am getting tired of this conversation with friends and colleagues. Them "So what happened to you" Me "I broke my leg" Them "How did you do that" Me "I had an accident on my motorbike" Them "What happened" Me "A car cut me off" Them "Geez you were lucky" Me "WHAT !!! I broke my leg.. how is that lucky" Them "No, lucky you weren't killed" Me "hmm well, I guess so" Them " So I guess thats the end of your riding" Me "Huh ?" Me " I cant wait to get back on the bike" Them "Well I had a friend, uncle, [insert random acquaintance] who had a motorbike accident. Blah blah blah blah they spent x weeks in hospital blah blah blah.. dangerous things blah blah blah" Me "Well I could have done this or worse playing sport, or just falling down the stairs" Them " Guess So" In hindsight, I think I should just tell people I fell down the stairs drunk... might be a quicker conversation.
