did i mention that i got in a wee car accident yesterday? no, i didn't think so. there have been some low moments in this long weekend which have made me deeply thankful (yet again) that i'm not a single parent. it's all much more fun and easier with a partner like m! anyway, i was driving (slowly, speed limit 25, so i was going about 28 mph) up preble street, and a man driving a truck apparently thought i had a stop sign. coming from the right, he stopped at his stop sign and then proceeded to pull out directly into ace-the-acura's path. we honked (ace and i), and braked, but alas, we smashed into him a little bit. the man was a nice older guy with a fabulous maine accent. we were cordial to each other, exchanged info, and he duct-taped my right turn signal back to my car.
the amazing thing about this is that this was my first accident in 20 years! the last time i was in a little smash-up was when i was 19, driving the plushmobile, drinking a diet coke which spilled all over my lap upon impact. this time my brother adam wasn't with me, i wasn't drinking any kind of beverage, it was the other guy's fault, and i didn't cry one bit!! now i assume i'm safe until i'm 59.
