From 6/19

I do the bike-riding equivalent of a stumble and beat the hell out of my left lower leg when the bike falls on me during an inexpert semi-dismount. Fortunately the guys doesn't notice.

"Can I ride you?" one of them says as I stop at the light.

"My girlfriend wouldn't like that," I say, wondering if he can see Gina Gershon from "Bound" in the thought bubble above my head.

"Oooooh!" he says. "Then can I watch?"

I could kick myself for not anticipating that comment, but figure the blood already trickling down my leg is sufficient punishment.
