Later I exploded an inner tube by over-inflating it and that is no small bang! I guess I've never done that before and in the enclosed space of a garage it was tinnitis-inducingly loud. Fun. Plus it explodes in a cloud of talc so I picture myself like the classic post-explosion soot covered guy.
And to top it off I dropped a fresh twelve pack of beer (or rather, it fell off of the counter) on my foot. Only one bottle broke but the ensuing sudsiness seemed like a whole lot more.
When riding home yesterday a black cat ran across the road in front of me, so I guess it could have been worse.
