Some alone time... & an accident...


This post is unwarranted for...

Pardon any spelling mistakes, grammar or any other errors your eagle-eye scopes & finds in this post...
I'm just writing coz I'm buggered off...
& yes... This post could otherwise translate 'A day in the life of the Ugly Fat Guy'...
(Minus the accident of course)

I spent quality time today... With myself!!
For those people who can't stay alone and need someone beside them 24x7, I really REALLY pity you...


The Pamper:

I woke up ridiculously late after dozing for atleast 10 hours...

Made myself some lovely breakfast - Omelette de Fromage (which translates to 'Cheese Omelette') & toast with coffee...

Figured out I should finish up with the formalities in college that I'd been putting off for a mighty long time (read at least TWO months)...

Cleaned my bike (my precioussss), donned my new shoes (I LOVE them!! :D) & took off...


The 'Bulb':

I reached a barren college with not even a single car in the car park... Even during days with the worst attendance I'd find 2 cars at the least...

"College Leave", the 'assholic' security guard tells me... (Damn these religious holidays!)
(Arvind's dictionary - assholic: an asshole under the influence of alcohol)
Seeing I have no more purpose to stay there he star
ts shoo-ing me away... I take a look around & there seems to be some road laying work going on in college...
Finally, they seem to putting the 60G fee they rip off from each student to SOME productive use...

Normally, I'd be fuming & I was... At that bastard 'friend' of mine who told me to get all my work done in time or else blah... blah...
"You are NOT my mother!!" (Not that I'd listen to her either...)

But I was generally in good spirits because the roads were almost empty as everyone chose to nap all afternoon. Moreover, it was one of those rare afternoons where the weather was pleasant & it was pretty cool with the sun safely tucked away behind the clouds...


The Bliss:

I decided to go right past my house in Adyar to 'Baywatch' on Bessie Beach... I wanted to make the most of my day out...

I plonked myself on one of the chairs there & after ordering a BBQ burger with No veggies & extra BBQ sauce (drool away Suchi... :P) I, once again looked up at the wallpaper which was nothing but a collage of various photographs of people who visit Baywatch... I recognize barely 2% of the people on the pictures... I don't know how they made their way to the wall of fame when I rarely (or never) have seen them there...
I happened to notice a couple of pretty girls too... That too in the afternoon! Yaay! My day was made... :D
Pretty soon, I'd wiped the wax-paper clean of all traces of the burger... Sigh... It's heavenly. Definitely the burger haven of Chennai!
I strolled back to my bike very content... My stomach seemed to think so too...

& I felt this sudden urge to go on a really long ride...

I checked the amount of fuel & to my horror it was already running on reserve...

I finally ended up going on a long winding ride on ECR to VGP & back...

I touched 110kmph & well... There are NO words to tell you how that feels...
It's just mind-numbing as everything in front of you becomes blurred except for the steadily rising needle in the speedo...


The Irony:

On my way back home, I noticed the Bajaj service centre was open... Apparently they aren't staunch followers of religious tradition... I could jump for joy! My bike service was overdue by at least a month now... Primarily because I hadn't finished the required number of kilometres & secondly, because I was a tad too lazy...

I walked in & booked the service time for tomorrow & I was immensely happy that I'd managed to do so many things that day...
& right after that, barely had I gone 500 metres past the service station when my day turned really REALLY sour...


The Accident:

It was a white Maruti Zen...

I was riding at just over 40 kmph...

He looked left, left & then left again... & without as much as glancing to the right, decided to take off past the intersection...

Right in my path...
Even after I honked, blinked my lights & I noticed another car waiting patiently for me to pass...

I jammed the brakes...

I felt the rear wheel lift up for a brief moment as I'd locked the front discs & after that, we pretty much went skidding sideways...

I didn't want to let go of the bike... I just didn't... But my presence of mind had other things planned...
At the very last moment I propelled myself out of the seat & I watched the bike slam sideways onto the car door... Just a second later, I followed suit & knocked my left shoulder on the car really hard...

In less than a second, a guy was wheeling my bike to the side of the road & someone was attempting to lift me up & that's when I felt it...

The rage...
Everything I'd kept bottled up for a long time just wa
nted to escape from within...



The Rage
:

I got up unaided...
Took my helmet of my head, threw it on the road...
Lunged towards the open driver's window my fist balled tight...
Right when two guys caught me & stopped me from landing a hard one on that apologetic middle aged man in the driver's seat...

It took 5 minutes for me to stop to find my breath while I cursed him...
I think it's the first time I've used words such as f**k, bas***d, assh**e & motherf**ker on someone almost twice my age...

& I picked my helmet back up and walked back to my bike...
It's time for that thorough inspection...


THREE ugly f**kin scratches...

I almost feel like I've three deep scratches on my arm... The scars to remain forever & it should always hurt...
Thankfully, I have a servicing schedule tomorrow & I could ask him to check out for other problems my bike might have because of the collision...


I think there's something wrong with my thumb... & my right leg...
I guess I'll just have to wait & see which parts of my body are going to ring in dull shades of blue/purple...
(Luckily I jumped off the bike, or I'd have been pinned between the bike & the car and well... I might have broken a LOT of things in the least!! Thank God for relfex...)


Sigh...
This post is just plain sucky... But I'm going to post it anyway...
I don't care if you read it or not...
I'm just in one of the worst moods I've ever been in...

& Yes... I've always ridden safely & to think this is the FIRST accident I've had on my bike in a year is something a lot of ppl might acclaim in wonder... NO!! I'm NOT happy...

Now, do whatsoever you want... I just hope I feel like blogging sometime in the near future!!


Cheers! (Nothing to cheer about though...)

@arvind: 110 is beautiful. Nothing can describe it., it is just beautiful :) My bike will start crying in pain at that speed :P I gave her that treatment once :P And., I totally loved it. But poor thing., i'm not gonna treat her like that again :P

Dont worry about the scratches man. I know it is painful., but one day or the other., everybody falls. Good that nothing happened to you. Getting pinned between the car and the bike would have been real painful.

The first (and last) time I fell was because of a dumb dog which ran straight into :-S Too bad., I could not even scream at it. :(
