DH's employer participated in the Bike to Work Contest last month. You know, being healthy and reducing carbon footprints and all.
One of the top performing teams was from DH's department, so this morning his employer held a recognition meeting to honor them.
The team members stood up in front of the department to accept their awards. One of the men stepped forward to give extra kudos to Johnny Spandex, who led the team in miles biked for the month.
Unfortunately, the speaker informed the group, Johnny Spandex was in the hospital and unable to accept the award in person.
He was hit by a truck, riding his bike to work.
