I got into a minor scrape while on my way to Holland Village for dinner last night.

It was raining but I was doing my thing i.e. being safe.

However, this hmstrfckr of a driver came along and nearly sideswiped me after the right turn from Farrer Road into Holland Road.

As a reflex action, I jammed on the brakes but Le Poots skidded and I took a tumble.

(Yes, I know I could’ve corrected the skid but hindsight is always 20/20.)

Anyway, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I took the impact of the fall on my left side so I have contusions/abrasions on my elbow and left leg.

My phone bore the brunt of it though:

Guess Gorilla Glass ain’t as strong as Titanium huh.

Anyway, I picked myself up, dusted myself and my bruised body/ego off and continued on to dinner.

It was only after dinner that I realised Pooters was missing a cylindrical plate.

I was, like: do I go look for it? Do I just send Pooters to the mechanic and ask him to order a new part for it?

On a whim, I thought: OK, I’ll just sweep the area and if I find the plate, I find it; if I don’t, I don’t.

Bruised and battered.
