I’ve never really been involved in a car accident until today. I must say that I found it quite anticlimactic. Itâ€™s snowing. I was driving along my merry way, taking an alternate route to work since someone was blocking traffic along the regular route, when a big Jeep coming down a hill couldnâ€™t stop at the bottom and stopped, instead, by hitting me. Two cars colliding at 25 MPH or less is really nothing exciting. Iâ€™ve been on more violent roller coasters.
Both of us were fine, chatting a little while the police came and then again when we were both towed to the same place. My carâ€™s out of commission for a while, but, to me, itâ€™s no big whoop since I wonâ€™t be paying for anything. If youâ€™re going to be in an accident, itâ€™s best to be the hittee.
My car might be smashed up, but I took out her front tire. Iâ€™m kind of proud of my Kia for sticking up for itself. Reminds me of football: smash me up if you want, but Iâ€™m going to hit you low and stop you in your tracks. And thatâ€™s what I did. Very unintentionally.
