I fell

Today I fell with my bicycle.

I don't know what happened, but when I was falling I was near a wall and I consciously turned the wheel towards the wall to have some control over my falling.
I was able to lean a bit against the wall during the last part of the drop, thus preventing my leg to make a strange turn. I probably prevented a broken leg.

Interestingly no one helped me in any way.
People saw it happenening, I saw them looking, but they didn't lift a finger.

I was wearing my favorite shoes. One has a damaged nose.
My bag had damage, as had my bicycle.

I had some nasty bruising on one foot and one knee, some scratchwounds on hands and knee and my hip hurts more than ever.

At home I dropped my earring, and it took quite a while to find it.
I guess I was far more shaken than I wanted to admit to myself.

I skipped some plans for the paper and gave my legs a rest.

It has been a long time ago that I fell. That time I was on a men's bike so I took a risk.
This time I was just bicycling as always.
Maybe something got stuck in the wheel?
