No, nothing serious or exciting. Nothing interesting really, but it did make a pretty meaty sound as it hit my leg and elbow. The sound was most likely amplified tenfold for the poor driver (I once accidentally hit a skateboarder - it was the skateboarder's fault - and I nearly had a heart attack!) but I came out of it without a scratch. OK, the car was only going fast enough to have broken my legs, maybe a hip as well, but what surprised me was that there was no close escape feeling, no flash of light. I did not necessarily expect a Road to Damascus experience, but it would have been cool if I had felt a little more thankful.
What a weird cocktail of emotion, being disappointed that I was not more thankful. Like ingredients that you never thought could go together. This led to me thinking about what I have achieved... Or the rather more impressive list, of what I *have not* achieved.
And I ended up blogging some more. Nice.
