it was taking something off a shelf when a piece of steel bar- with, of course, a sharp(very) corner, that should not have been there, pulled off the shelf. And fell corner-first(of course) on my foot. Giving me a hole in my shoe and a very interesting hole in the side of one toe.
Which, of course, bled like a punctured bag, leading to a trip to medical assistance which resulted in stitches.
Me: Here's what happened, I think it's going to take a couple of stitches.
Doc, after looking it over: I concur with your diagnosis.
Which I determined, barring collapse, was not going to prevent taking care of a matter, said matter resulting in 471 miles in the saddle over the weekend. The good thing: once up to speed all the foot had to do was sit there, so it worked out. Aside from the dehydration, etc.*
Anyway, all that stuff's taken care of. Happily before today, as between the temp and humidity, well, I'd rather stand over a forge again than try to ride any real distance today.
Speaking of, the bike in travel trim:
