This Shouldn't Look Like This

So I was tooling down Milwaukee Ave. last Thursday when an oncoming Prius decided to squeeze between stopped traffic and make a left turn right into me. There was nothing I could do ... it happened too fast. I flew about fifteen feet, I think, before hitting concrete with my head.

 

For the record:

 

1. I am okay with nothing broken but my bike and my helmet. I'm just really sore. I took Friday off. I'm thinking about taking tomorrow off as well ... depends on how I feel when I get up.

 

2. I wasn't doing anything stupid. The Prius was at fault. As a result, I've decided Hybrids in general and Priuses in particular are evil.

 

3. I think other than the wheel, the bike will be okay, because it's not a Schwinn.
