oh sweet mother of mercy... I totally rang-my-bell at the park.

tried something at the park on Geo's deck... dropping in on the small - but steep - ramp and have never done this particular deal before.
Didn't lean forward enough.
skate board shot like a rocket out from under me...
I flew backwards...
landed ... "landed" on the small of my back with my body curved forwards (attempted to lean forward... just not 'nuf) and every joule of energy wrapped up in my body rolled through my body, up to my head, which snapped back with amaz-a-tron force.
tore chunks out of my helmet.
and... d'uh... my neck is sore.
small of my back isn't dancing the conga either.
Elbow pads... saved me from both arms shattering at said elbows...
Got a lot of "you ok?"s and help from the various people there... and geo looked mighty worried.
I managed to skate for another half hour and ...
(no really mom... I mean this part)
... I'm ok... just, you know... rang my bell.

Time to ice my neck for a bit.
(and pray that it's not too too bad tomorrow.)
