1.00pm 13th August
Riding along, following my instructor, I drove too fast into a bend and ended up punching the curb. Not a good move.
A conscientious paramedic was on the scene within 10 minutes followed by 2 police cars because this was a Road Traffic Accident (RTA).
The police apologised for breathalising me. I was being way too sensible to be drunk. Not even a hint of last night’s glass of wine was hanging around.
Instructor: you should call your partner, get ‘em to pick you up from the hospital
wendy: I’m on holiday alone, I don’t have a partner and my family all live on the west coast, so there’s no-one nearby to call. I’ll be able to find a bus to get me out of hospital
