“Drunken bikers” or “Watch out of the curb”

Some random drunk guy riding his bike just crashed into the curb running along our road and collapsed on our lawn. Scott and I were outside spreading top soil on some lawn we want to replant. We saw the whole thing: the slow motion pedaling, the collapse, the subsequent half-conscious lying…it was pretty nutty. Thought he was mentally handicapped for a while.

I cautiously approached him to see if he was OK. He didn’t really know what was going on for a while and I tried talking to him. He couldn’t say much. I helped him up and had to steady him to even stand. I could smell the alcohol on his breath. Then he insisted I stand his bike up and he pedaled off down the road at about 2 miles per hour. Don’t now how he didn’t tip over.

The last thing he said to me was "I love you." Classic drunkenness, I guess; I thought they only acted that way in the movies… :)

Scott and I then got a bit concerned. He could peal out in front of a car pretty easy or crash in the park some place. So, we called 911 and gave them a description and his bearing. Hopefully they find him and he gets cleaned up.

They def. don’t just act that way in the movies. You should see drunk college students…Oh the stories I could tell as a Hall Director.

Yeah…something I missed out on in my college experience… Especially during the semester at Focus :)

I’m all ears for a short and sweet drunkenness story!
