I was out riding MUni really early this morning came through a place in the trail where there is dense shrubbery on both sides and growing over the top. I always have to duck down to get through. I have gone through here easily twenty times before.
For some reason, I wasn’t paying attention as I went through and I grazed twigs from a branch. The twigs grazed me just on top of my right eye and below it. If I had been any lower or any higher, I would have had a twig scratching or right across my eyeball. I was really lucky.
The irony was that at the top of the hill before I made my gradual descent, I was too lazy to put my sunglasses on, figuring it was 5 minutes to the trail head, why bother.
Next time I wear the glasses.
Work the maze.
