No Harm Done

Monday, October 20, 2008


The littles and I were in a car accident tonight. I was T-Boned by a motorcycle while we were two blocks from home.

Everyone involved is ok, but sadly, my van is not.

The driver side of my van is dented and scratched from bumper to bumper. The driver's window is shattered. Glass is everywhere. And my front tires are now both sort of.... bowlegged? Knock-kneed? Is there a word for what happened? At any rate, the van is not drivable for more than a couple of blocks.

The motorcycle??? No damage. None. It looks completely untouched.

How is it that a little motorcycle rendered my great big van useless?

Not fair.

Not fair. Not fair. Not fair!!!!

OK. My tantrum is over. Tomorrow I call the insurance agent, figure out what I'll be driving for the next little bit, and pray that this whole thing gets settled quickly.

I'm sorry! I'm glad that none of you were hurt, but too bad about your van. That is really weird that the van is so drastically damaged, but the motorcycle is unscathed. I really hope that insurance covers the damages for you.

What about the motorcyclist? Glad to hear God's angels were watching over you all.

Too bad it wasn't a deer; at least you would have gotten some venison out of it! ;-)

A van? I'm all about efficiency..but...a van?

Here's to hoping you get something sassy and well as efficient.
