Car Accidents Suck
I was in a little accident on Friday morning. Some guy ran into the back of my car while I was sitting at a red light. He hit me fairly hard; hard enough to push me into the truck in front of me. I'm sore, but should be fine. The car held up remarkably well...I can only see a few scratches on it. The funny thing about it was, he hit me so hard that he actually knocked my flip-flops off of my feet!! All 3 vehicles pulled into a parking lot, and as the adrenaline rush started, I thought, "Where the hell are my flip-flops? I just had them on!" They were right under my feet! The guy that I was pushed into was an insurance agent (kind of funny), and he kept wanting to call an ambulance for me. Then the cops kept wanting to call an ambulance...I refused several times. I must have looked really bad, though, because they just kept asking me! When I called Big D to tell him I was in a wreck, but ok, he asked if I wanted him to come to the scene. I told him no, I would be home soon. In retrospect, I'm glad I didn't ask him to come down. The guy that hit me was already jumpy, so this big biker guy coming to see who hit his wife's car would have totally alarmed him! At least he had car insurance...a lot of people driving in AZ do not have it. I went to the ER and got some pain meds and some Naprosyn for the swelling. I think the seat belt really did a number on my left shoulder. Other than that and a mild case of whiplash, I'll be fine. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
