On the Idiot End of the Straight

Limping in with A5, I find I've got an inside draw at the flop, and the bet into me is not huge, so I go for one more card. I catch lucky, and thin the field, but one guy stays. The river brings a six and there's a six high straight on the board, invalidating my claim to best hand, and the opposition goes all in.

He was kind enough to show me what I folded to. Sure enough, he had the seven.
