A note of caution...

(viewed 1981 times)

They say lightning never strikes twice, but tell that to a tree on a hilltop in a storm.

Actually, don’t. It’s not safe.

Also, don’t ride a bike, in the city, in a storm. Pedestrians huddled under brollies won’t look before crossing streets like startled gazelles. Trying not to hit them can put you on your back.

Riding off again, angry, brakes damaged, is also unwise. That’s how I got hit by a bus.

Now I’m in bed, plastered, as rain pounds the window. There’s a tree out there, taller than the rest. I think I understand how it feels.

Woohoo you managed to post!

Great stuff. I like the sensible, serious note of caution and yet comical subtext in the characters' perseverance and blanket refusal to submit to the mounting challenges ahead. Only to be smote down, seemingly for overreaching. Deadpan divine justice? Or just an accident... can't wait to read more!
