Yesterday was definitely an equal mix of good and evil. Let us start with evil: as I was trudging home from the gym yesterday morning I had no choice but to walk behind a man shoveling the sidewalk on Flatbush. Thinking that he was aware of my presence and would avoid slamming me with his metal shovel, I skipped by lightly as he was bent over scooping. I was wrong. He brought the shovel back full force into my knee cap and I instantly started bawling like a baby for a nipple. Worse, once the apology dialogue was underway I realized that he was mentally disabled. So then of course I felt totally horrible for crying and making him feel guilty, which all ended up with me both having a busted knee and feeling guilty about it. Bleh.
