Vanilla Chai from Dunkin Donuts. I got up and limped to the store for cat food since I was supposed to get it last night but I was too busy being injured in my very first car crash since I got my license in 1977. I left work around 3:35 (25 mins early woohoo!) and instead of going home my usual way I was going to take the expressway because I wanted to get to the post office before it closed (not realizing that it was actually open yesterday morning and then finding out it was only to find out later that it was only open half a day! So going that way wasn't necessary!) so I was in stop and go traffic and I was just taking my foot off the brake when I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the car behind me flying up on me. My thoughts were "oh sh*t he's gonna" then he hit me. I jammed my foot on my brake but I still bumped the woman in front of me but the car behind me was trashed. (see pic)

I got out of my car after I found my teeth and put them back in my head and yelled at the kid who hit me "what the hell was that all about??!!" He was very sorry ... then I find out he's just 17 ... I felt awful for him. His first car was trashed. I hugged him and told him I was sorry for yelling at him! LOL My car didn't appear to have much damage ... the bumper is broken and the muffler was hanging ...

But the more I look at it the more damage I find. The back door won't open at all ... the latch that opens it is broken, the back door is caved in a bit and the windshield wiper is busted. His insurance will pay for it all ... but this stinks really. In all honesty it could have been far worse. He hit me so hard his airbag deployed. I guess they go off around 15 MPH. Anyway ... my knee - yes the bad one) is swollen and I'm going to have it checked out today. I think it's just soft tissue damage but I'll have it examined anyway.

Well I hope you guys have a better day than I probably will - on the OTHER hand ... baby boy who was going to go to Iowa with his dad this weekend insisted on staying home with his mommy and so I GET TO HAVE ANOTHER WEEKEND WITH MY LITTLE MAN! Woohoo!!!!

Have a great day guys!
