I left the office yesterday to pick Jake up after he got home from school. When I exited the alley behind our office, I cut the wheel too sharply and scraped the rear fender against a telephone pole. Ugh. I pulled over to survey the damage and wasn’t too happy with what I saw.
So, I returned to the office and told Brian about it. He was understanding, as usual. On our way home from work (our rental car that we’ve been using since the accident had to be returned yesterday. hopefully we’re going to get a new car today), we stopped at Deyarmin’s Garage and they were able to pull most of the dent out (with a nifty device like this). That made me feel a little better. However, there is a scrape in the paint so we’re going to need to have that repaired. The guy at the garage didn’t think it should cost more than a couple hundred, so I guess that’s not too bad. However, it is one more thing that needs to be done.
Needless to say, my bike is being winterized this weekend. It’s the only vehicle of ours that hasn’t been involved in an accident this year and I intend to keep it that way.
