I haven't been in a car accident in thirty years. A few weeks ago I was sitting in my car in a parking space minding my own business. Suddenly a car backs into the same spot I'm in and takes out my front bumper. Turns out it was a little old lady. She was in her late seventies and very shaken about the whole thing. I told it was no big deal and let her go. It only cost me two hundred bucks to fix it. The other day I had to take a cab home from the city. I'm sitting in the back seat spacing out, and BANG. A hummer takes out the rear end of the cab. I got out and walked the last few blocks home. Several days after that, Yun and I were driving home from the beach. Traffic stopped on the Long Island expressway. I came to a full stop and all of a sudden the woman behind me decided not to stop at all. Boom! Took out my whole truck and bumper and smashed my car into the SUV in front of me, taking out my whole front end. Oh well, that's life. All I can do is go through the motions of getting it all sort out. It's a pain but at least no one was hurt. Now that I've been banged up so many times in a row maybe I'm due for a few years of accident free driving. Can lightning really strike four times? I hope not.

Now we have a new Toyota Rav4. Very safe and sound.

Hummers do suck.

Glad you're both okay. Looking at your car, I'd say the babe owes you for the duct tape.

Sounds like my luck lately...but that's in the past. BTW: You know you can sketch when images of your beat up car look good.

Sorry about that last post, I guess I was under the impression that you needed a car accident attorney in Los Angeles CA. I didn't realize you weren't in the area. Good post anyway.
