The Crash 09

Just to be clear, cuz folks want details and want to know everything's cool.

I did lose control of the Vespa, going about 30 around a curve, in the right lane. Water + speed + curve = no es bueno. Simple physics really.

And THAT's where that limit is. Good to know. Moving right along.

Road rash on the ankle. Shin is numb, bruised and swollen. Closed fracture on the middle finger tip. And thumb, but that one's not so bad at all. Apparently I was giving Someone the finger as I was going down? Bad Shel!

I have insurance. It's being towed to a repair shop. All is well and right in the world. Except that neither the strippers nor nurses ever showed up.


  1. Miss West? It's time for your sponge bath now.

  2. Yikes. I'm glad you are okay!

    p.s. Why are there so many fucking hoops to jump through to leave a comment here. I'm half expecting to be asked for my SSN and two forms of ID.

  3. Glad you're okay too. I loved the image of you flipping someone off as you wiped out--I mean if you're gonna go, might as well go big, right?
