Yeah, so I wrecked my car today. Again. I was in the right-hand turn lane and some inconsiderate person in the left-hand turn lane pulled so far ahead that I couldn’t see, and when they went I thought it was okay for me to go, but it wasn’t. Crashed into this other car, ripped my bumper off, antifreeze leaking. Other car not hurt so bad. But I got a ticket, and I already had a speeding ticket for November, and I have to go to court and we have a hanging judge, and I am envisioning all sorts of horror with license confiscating and so on. I don’t know.
I was really upset about it. My parents picked me up and kept assuring me it was not a big deal, no injuries, cars can be replaced, yada yada, but I was rather inconsolable. Then we went to my nephews’ double birthday party (they were born two days apart) and my sister-in-law gave me some vodka with juice and I perked up a bit. Dad drove me home. I think I had better wait till I’m sober before I call the insurance company, lest they jump to conclusions.
