So there's this hill I have to ride up every day to get to campus. It is my arch nemesis. It is unto a hill made of tears, sweat, and the cries of children. It is huge, huger than huge...the hugest. Every morning that I see it I let out a huge sigh and then begin my trek up that mountaneous beast. Oh how I loathe it. Every day, by the time I get to the top my knees are all wobbly and I feel like I'm trying to walk on stilts of jello. Nobody wants to walk on stilts made of Jello I'll tell you that much!
So yesterday I'm trucking up this hill on my bike...and I'm starting to breath heavy...and my sunglasses are starting to fog up because I'm getting so hot...and I can feel my newly curled hair start to twang up from the humidity.
People. It was not a pretty sight.
All of the sudden my bike gave up the ghost. Oh it was tragic! It lost it's will to live and started randomly shifting gears every half second. But do not pity the bike, no no, PITY ME! I was chucked off of my bike and landed straight in the arms of an unsuspecting man.
It was one of those moments that happens in the movies. Damsel trips and unsuspecting gent catches her. I looked up, my sunglasses all sideways and twisty on my face, my headphones yanked out of my ears and I blurted out
"OH MY GOSH THANK YOU!"
He just laughed at me (I mean who wouldn't really at how disheveled I looked), "Ahh...you were almost to the top of the hill of death."
My glasses still foggy, " It is the hill of death isn't it! (I raise my fist to the air) I WAS SO CLOSE!"
He turns, " Been there, don't worry the same thing happened to me."
And then the mysterious guy exited just as quickly as he entered and vanished into a fog of hollywood likeness (okay so he just kept walking up the hill).
Such a random awkward experience. But then I thought about what he said. What? He had been there and had the exact same thing happen to him? Been thrusted into the arms of an unsuspecting man who rescued him from his death? Why didn't I ask him about that story. That sounds way more awkward and entertaining than mine! Anways, thanks mysterious movie man for saving my life! I owe ya one!
