Could I go six months without an accident, please?

Coming back to my apartment after a doctor's appointment this fine Saturday morning, a young man decided it would be smart to whip out of street parking and make a u-turn directly in front of my on-coming vehicle. Result: his car is trashed, the front end of mine is fucked up, he's been ticketed for failure to yield, and I'm about to leave for the emergency room.


My head hurts, my neck hurts, and my lower back now feels like someone is stabbing me, over and over again.

Seriously, this is happening with way too great a frequency. I'm just not amused. At all.

Fucktard drivers of the DC metropolitan area: stay the hell away from me. PLEASE!

Just what I wanted: more quality time with pharmaceuticals and ice packs. Feh!

Good grief. I'm hoping for the best.

I'm trying to think of a bright side. Maybe his insurance company will not be stingy and pay for lots of physical therapy? Good luck with getting your car fixed/getting recovered from all your back trauma.

I hoped you were kidding but I know you're not... So sorry for you! Hope you'll be alright quickly this time!

Aw crap, that's just not fair!

Hope you're feeling better soon, M!

I think it's time for spells. Really. Bring the book when you're back and we'll whip one up. So sorry, MJ. Take care.
