Even prettier

even prettier on day five

I didn't even know bruises could turn this color. It's like the colored milk left over from eating some nasty food-dyed child's cereal, only on my thigh. Gross.

I also made a new discovery yesterday. While biking to work in Gresham along Portland's Springwater Corridor, I discovered that geese are evidently open to attacking cyclists. Little fuzzy goslings? Pretty cute. Their parents? Not so much. Matter of fact, I'm starting to think geese are downright evil.

Maybe my bike has a poltergeist that is out to get me. First train tracks, now geese, all within two weeks of beginning to ride again. We'll see how this cycling to work/ reducing carbon footprint/ fattening my wallet experiment goes.
