A new game!

Before I forget:

As I was going out to shovel snow for the second time today, I met one of the women who lives in the apartment upstairs, She was clad in full winter regalia (sweater, coat, scarf, gloves, hat, etc.) and was pretty much covered in snow, which was a little odd, because by that point it had largely stopped snowing and wasn't really that cold out.

"Hi Jake! I just learned a new game. It's really fun!"

She described it as follows: Find a long, straight street that doesn't get much traffic and has been plowed so it's safe to ride your bicycle down it. Then, ride your bike down the street really fast. After you've reached maximum speed, start edging over to the side of the road, and, at the key moment, fall over into the snow bank at your side. It's like getting into a horrible accident, except with snow, so it's fun!

I don't have a bike, so I won't be trying this out, but if anyone wants to give it a whirl and report back, feel free! Also, don't sue me, please!
