Interesting thought

It doesn't matter how many battles you lose, as long as you win the war.  George Washington is remembered as the great American revolutionary who won the war for the Patriots.  However, most people don't know that George Washington actually lost more battles than he won.  I was surprised to learn that myself during a college course many years ago.

Crashed into a dog

I was riding about 25 miles per hour on the morning commute, going through a park.  Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a dog darting towards me.  Helpless, I knew that I couldn't stop in time and, sure enough........CRASH!!   My front bike wheel rammed right into the dog and I fell onto the ground.  Its a good thing I had a helmet on because my head slammed hard into the ground.  But, fortunately, the helmet absorbed everything.  I scolded the owner, who apologized to me, for not keeping the dog on a leash.  No major injuries though.  Without a helmet, I might be brain dead right now.
