Crash,Bang,Wallop

The date went well on Sat night.She looked stunning and we seemed to click.

Unfortunately tonight I was driving home from work at a when a wooden crate blew into my path.I swerved to avoid it,spun a couple of times and ended up walloping a lamppost.Other drivers stopped and helped me out the car before the ambulance arrived to take me to casualty.Bottom line is I've bruised my kidneys,hurt my lower back and leg.Coughed up a tiny bit of blood probably due to a few wee glass shards from the windscreen but I'll be alright.I reckon I'm in for an uncomfortable few days but the police that attended the scene reckoned I was lucky to walk away as the car is almost certainly a write-off.My sis and brother in law have been great and sent me a wee vid of Nacho happily munching his bone.I'll get him back in the morning.

Anyways I'm full of painkillers and some of my own herbal medicine so I'll leave it there for now.Anyone any idea the market value an insurance co would pay out for a 2005 Focus St170 with 35k on the clock....

Ouch. Glad to hear you aren't too bad, sounds like it could have been a heck of a lot worse!

Wow! At least the box is unharmed.

Seriously tho, that's an intense story, I am glad the damage to your body wasn't so bad. Good luck with the insurance company.

Holy crap mate, you wrote that all so matter-of-factly. Gald to hear you are ok though.

Also good to hear the date went well. Seems like life is like poker for you... run good, then run bad, but at least it wasn;t as bad as it could have been.

Look after yourself fella.

You just have to console yourself with the thought that it could have been a lot worse!

Fine idea Waffles.Hopefully she'll be over later in the week.

Thanks Mair.I think it only really began to sink in last night just what a close shave it was.Too sore to accept the courtesy car just now but hopefully the pain will go.

Damn flying pallets indeed John!Still can't work out if I was unlucky that it blew into my path or lucky I'm still here.Apparently the lamppost is totally bent over.

on the plus side, like a poker pro you managed to keep your mouse hand unharmed!

 
At Wednesday, 11 November, 2009, Blogger Littleacornman said...

That was obviously my only main concern Juice!

"Our trade"? Does that mean you've ventured back to the virtual felt?!
