At the bike auction today I stopped by the insurance table for a bike light. I saw a pamphlet about the new laws regarding bike helmets. I told the insurance man,
"I never used to wear a bike helmet until I woke up in an ambulance. When I saw my doctor afterward, I expected a finger-wagging. Instead he told me he also didn't wear one until he went through the windshield of a car. I had never fallen off my bike before, I had never had an accident. It was like I thought that because it hadn't happened yet, it never would."
He said "I think you just summed up human nature right there."
