I will always remember today as the first-time-I-rode-a-motorbike-fiasco-day. And it was all of those things.

I ordered one of my friends to teach me how to ride a motorbike. He told me everything in a two minute how-to and then he put me on a bike and told me to go nuts.

Well, I did do that. I started it and it started to move slowly. After that, things are a blur. But let me give you a brief list of things I remember.

1 – I remember the bike going faster and faster.

2 – I remember the bike going so fast that the front wheel actually got off the ground once.

3 – I remember screaming like a teenage school girl.

4 – I remember frantically jerking both handles because I forgot one of them is the accelerator.

5 – I remember trying my best to press the left handle stick and the brake simultaneously.

6 – I remember trying to pull the keys out of the iginition and failing.

7 – I remember screaming like a middle aged woman during Oprah.

8 – I remember all this happening in a span of about five seconds or fifty meters.

9 – I remember the motorbike falling on someones garden and stopping.

10 – I remember groaning a lot after that.

As God is my witness, I will learn to ride a bike.

Once I do that I will tell possible sex mates to sit behind me, very close, while I scare them with my antics.

Hmmmmm, I think I hit my head on the curb too hard. So the five inch scar that I have on my neck does actually matter in my long term mental health.
