Today is September 6, 2018. Around 12 noon, I was at Schola Angelicus delivering lunch for my daughter. Then I decided to take the Mamatid to Gulod exiting NIA Road to San Isidro to pick up my Grade 3 son from school.
It was a wet day. Been raining for almost half a day. I was driving carefully and slowly because of the condition of the road. There was an SUV ahead of me. The driver was slow. So I had to be slow too. Then a motorcycle passed and went in front of me.
I also have been coughing since I just recovered from flu. I felt the phlegm in my mouth, and I had to spit it out. I had an idea of stopping, taking my helmet off and spitting it out. BJutl no, l guess that was the mistake. I tried taking my helmet partially off my head then spit it out using my left hand. That was the plan.
Then, the motorcycle driver in front of me stopped. Which caused me to grab the brakes and the clutch. To make matters worst, since it was wet, I slid — good thing I was wearing a helmet.
I felt the asphalt road. My hands was acted upon impact. The bike became the shock absorber that received all the force. Which was good. The only pain I felt was on my right leg. I fell on my left side. The pictures shows small wounds on my leg. Small but painful reminder to always pray and be safe.
Thank God because someone also helped me get up from the road. Then he asked me if I was fine, to which I said yeah. Thanked him and check the damage or damages on my motorcycle. Good thing also that there were no other vehicles behind me or, in front. I was able to get to the side of the road and check myself and my ride.
Upon checking, I rode off and went to my son’s school and went home. Injured.
By the way, I didn’t swallow the phlegm, I was able to still spit it out.
