“Well, look at it this way, at least this will make a good story.”
This is what I told my friend as she was lying in a hospital bed in the ER hooked up to an IV last week. The blank look I received made me realize that maybe it’s something I should have kept to myself. We had completed a century ride that day. It was a gorgeous bike ride and everything went perfectly. No one crashed and we only walked away with two bee stings between us. We felt tired but accomplished as the ride came to a close. And then, my friend got sick due to dehydration and we ended up in the ER instead of being home in our beds.
