Another Accident...

So everyone remembers how I got in a car accident with a cop and ruined the brand new Taurus my dad got for me and my sister because my sister ruined our Honda? Well we got the Honda fixed so me and Christie could have a car. It is a 90 or 91 (can't remember) Honda Accord that has been in like five accidents and is just the biggest piece of junk car.

Last night I was at Tom's house and I left at like 3:00 something. Before I left Tom was really like concerned about me driving with wet streets and kept telling me to be safe. So I was driving home and it was raining a little but no problems.

Then as I was driving my car hit a really deep puddle. Like you know when you are driving and water shoots up on both sides cause the water is really deep - a lot deeper than you expected? Well that was the first thing that went wrong.

I don't think I ever gained full control of the car after the puddle. It started pouring down rain and I could not see anything. My windshield wipers were on as high as they could go and I could not see anything at all. So I hit the breaks and my car shot diagnally to the right. I had no idea what I was supposed to do so I yanked the wheel to the left. My car started spinning out of control. I can't really remember anything while the car was spinning but as soon as I stopped spinning there was like three seconds where I saw myself driving straight towards the barrier on the outside of the bridge and I knew I was going to crash and it was like the scariest feeling in the world.

So I hit the concrete thing on the side of the exit ramp bridge thing going fowards. Then my car bounced off and spun a bunch more and hit it going backwards. My car is pretty much ruined.

There was an ambulance driving right behind me so I got checked out right away. I have a giant welt on my neck from a burn I got from the seat belt but that is the only thing that happened. There was this really really nice young cop who was making jokes with me to help me feel better about everything. Turns out my liscense is expired and insurance is expired. The cop was like "my dad was a cop and I had an expired liscense and don't worry about it you won't get a ticket cause another car wasn't in the accident". He was soo nice and made me feel better telling me stories about how many cars he totalled by the time he was seventeen.

Anyway my mom was not mad she was just happy I was ok. The ambulance who saw the accident were like "that probably should have been a fatal accident you are really lucky you just walked out with some bruises and scratches". Which is a really scary thought. Honestly though I think it would be better if something happened because I bet my dad would not kill me if I already got hurt in the accident. He is going to be soo pissed. Christie will probably be pissed at me too.

Anyway, that was my night last night.

Thanks guys.

But jeff I completely agree with you. I am really lucky not to get tickets. I should have noticed my liscense was expired I just never even thought to check that I don't know.

As for the insurance that is really my parents thing not mine. They always have dealt with the insurance.

And obviously I should not have been driving cause I am really inexperienced and should not have been driving in the conditions I was driving in. I guess the best thing to do would be pull off the side of the road and call my mom or something instead of continuing to drive.

when you called me i could not sleep the rest of the night. aghhhhh, i had a really bad feeling that night

Also i'm glad you didn't get the tickets either or else you might've had to do what jeff always does and suck the cops dick... i mean, i know he likes it, but i think it would be a little traumatic for you. see you tomorrow!

I wish I had just fallen asleep on your couch, Tom. My mom would have been mad but at least I would still have a car.

I hate how when something bad happens and then you end up torturing yourself thinking about how it would not have happened if you did something differently.

So it's March 16 and I'm a huge out-of-the-loop doofus for not having read this a lot sooner. But. Shmovis, I love you. I WILL call you.
