i was looking outside my window and across the street a woman was riding her bike. she was going up the block, towards the park. she was on her cell phone.

she tried to make a turn and took a nasty spill. her bike crumbled beneath her, i think she landed on her peddles. i winced when i saw it. i said aloud -ouch! but here is the kicker, the entire time she stayed on her cell phone. she kept the phone to her ear. she never even stopped talking.

even as she lay there, scraped up, crumpled into a ball on her bike, she held the phone to her ear and kept talking. that must have been one important conversation.
