That Was Certainly Exciting

... for some value of "exciting" that does not include "good."

I was merrily pulling out of a parking space here, and had just turned my head forward to pull ahead (thanks to the nice person behind me who stopped to allow me into traffic), when a large pickup truck got impatient, zipped around, and rearended me. No injuries, but...

His front license plate snapped off.

Because his bumper was so high, it rode over my bumper and crushed the rear quarter of my car. The repair estimate is over $5k.

Thus, the paucity of entries for the past few days, and likely for the next few.
