Who wrecks on a Vespa Scooter!?!?!

Warning: The following post contains material that may be unsuitable for some viewers. Parental discretion is advised.

The pictures below tell it all, however, for those of you that are curious, I will tell the little story of how I wrecked on the Vespa. Our sweet neighbor offered to let me and my husband take her Vespa for a ride after our Shish-ka-bobs on Saturday night. Matthew and I drove around the block and then he asked me if I wanted to try it. "It's easier than riding a bike!" So, I tried it...Matthew was on the back of the scooter with me and I wasn't riding more than 10 seconds, when I freaked out pulled the throttle and sent the bike and Matthew flying on top of me. It's pretty sweet....the pictures below put my thumb to shame, which is the least of my worries now.

PS. I was wearing Capris and flip flops.....WHAT was I thinking!?!?!?!?

Sexy. That'll leave a mark and a fun story to tell your kids someday! "Mom, How did you dent your knee in like that?" LOL! Owch!

Yowza!! That looks painful! So sad! I hope you're not in too much pain... needless to say, you're not trading your car in for a Vespa any time soon? ;)

Did you make it through yesterday without any further misadventures?

Mari said...

Hey, I found your blog... Somehow. Through facebook I think. Those wounds look horrible! They do make for a great blog though! I swear I live my whole life based on what would make a good blog. Not really... but maybe sometimes.

Jeez! That looks quite painful! I am surprised you were able to take pics of it. I would probably be in too much a frenzy to even think about that.
