Of course I know my accident could have been far, far worse [Report, Not].
Of course I know the right thing was to stay home from the show.
Of course I know that being rear-ended means I need to be extra careful with the possibility of neck and spine damage.
Can’t I be wistful on the day, imagining everyone at the show without me?
Can’t I sniffle at the Facebook photo of Sam posing with all of his riders?
Can’t I be stir-crazy that recuperation takes longer than you think it will?
Can’t I be both?
