Embarassed beyond belief, tips for moving on.
Well it finally happened. I've dropped my bike. I've done this before. The first year I did it several times but it's been 6 summers and I haven't done it after that first year.
We went for a ride on Sunday and after getting home I left my bike in the driveway, so I could open the garage door. Hubby got stuck at a red light and he had the remote. Anyway, hopped back on and I tried to back in as I always do and as soon as I had my foot off the ground putting the kickstand up, my other foot slipped and I panicked and fell over. Now this normally wouldn't be the end of the world, but to my utter HORROR the neighbors were having a BBQ and there were 30-40 people all within 10 feet of me on the other side of the fence, drunk and laughing and pointing. I got the bike up right away and got her parked, just as hubby pulls in. Then they clapped when I walked back out of the garage.
I'm so mortified, and I don't know how to handle this. The homeowners themselves are nice, but I can't get past the absolute humiliation. Any advice, or will this pass in time.
Too late now, but any snappy comments I could have fired off?
