My Main Character Moment... For all the wrong reasons.

Being the main character isn't always easy. Sometimes it's downright painful...

Picture the scene. It's Fresher's 2019. You've been to induction activities all day and you're walking back to your flat with friends. (In broad daylight, may I add...). This was the beginning of what would become my most outrageous 'fun fact about me' of all time.

I went to cross the road; it was all clear. Until I felt a massive jolt in my lower back and fell headfirst to the floor. What on earth just happened? I looked up to see a guy on the concrete, who had fallen from a pedal bike. My friends on the pavement looked at me, mortified, as I lay face down in the middle of the road like that meme of the old lady saying "I've fallen and I can't get up".

Trying to stand, I realised I was injured. I couldn't straighten my right arm out at all, and two of my left fingers were burning hot with pain. All of these sensations hit me like a truck as I realised, it was a Deliveroo driver on the concrete in front of me.

You read that right. A Deliveroo driver. I was the girl hit by a pedal bike in freshers. What followed was an exciting trip to A&E where I had to tell about a million different people that I was hit by a pedal bike and even had some x-rays done.

In my life, we DO talk about Bruno, but we don't talk about Deliveroo.

Going home, I had a struggle of two weeks where I could barely brush my hair or eat food. But you know what? I was that girl. I was the one hit by the bike in probably the most pathetic A&E trip I've ever had (There has been many over the years for stupid accidents like this one).

Nearly three years on, I consider this to be one of my funniest freak accidents ever, and I get to use it as a 'fun fact about me' to break the ice in any social situation. Despite this though, I still see Deliveroo as my mortal enemy. In my life, we DO talk about Bruno, but we don't talk about Deliveroo.
