I have done some really stupid things in my life before. There was
that ditch-diving incident when my Dad told me to take my feet off the
pedals of my bike and I heard it as "take your hands off the
handlebars", and the time I was trying to get my parents attention by
standing inbetween them… whilst they were throwing bricks, not
forgetting the day I crossed the road in front of a bike, or the one
when I did the same in front of a car (I became such a regular at the
hospital, I was invited to their Christmas party).
