My husband likes to joke and tell people that it's dangerous to 'hit the bottle' while cycling, but the fact is that I did hit a discarded plastic bottle that was blowing across the road. And, because I saw a car approaching in my rear-view mirror I didn't dare swerve around the bottle. Obviously I didn't hit it at the right angle or whatever, and when I fell I landed on my outstretched hand. The result is a scaphoid fracture and traumatic boutonniere deformities to the two middle fingers.
So, to further what Bill says...beware: "If you hit the bottle while cycling, you just might get plastered!" And, once I can get back to my art journalling, you can expect to see that quote on a journal spread!
