…….so as if yesterday’s cell phone incident wasn’t enough…….
Driving Down Seaford Road. Absolutely Not Paying Attention. Very Much Deep In Thought. Fascinated by Road Construction Crew’s Very Bright Yellow Vests. Wonder if they are new. Notice Very Large Man holding Very Small Stop Sign. Process Stop Sign. Stop. Contemplate Bright Yellow Vests some more, wonder if they are Glow in the Dark.
Hear screeching tires. Hmmm. Check out rear view mirror. Quit contemplating Bright Yellow Vests and begin contemplating Big White Truck growing Even Bigger in rear view mirror. Process the thought that I’m about to be hit. Hmmm. Wonder how much damage will be done. Realize I don’t have my seat belt on. Berate self for not having seat belt on.
Watch Big White Truck grow even bigger and bigger. Listen to screeching wheels.
Watch construction crew all stop working and start staring. Find this Very Very Very Funny.
Turn off Car. Contemplate: That wasn’t so bad. Remove self from car. Assure very nice, very apologetic man that I am quite alright. Inspect damage.
Not bad. Bumper scraped. A couple of dings.
Very nice man offers $100 for damages. Rent due this week. Accept offer. Shake hands.
Drive off. Contemplate Bright Yellow Construction Vests again. Wonder if they are machine washable.
