oh. wow.

there are always things in life that you think, "i'd sure like to do that before i croak". experiencing your airbag inflating is NOT one of those things.

you know the short merge lane getting on 295 north off of howard street in anacostia? bits of my car have joined all the other bits of car that litter that shoulder. i'm ok, the other guy is ok. my car... is not ok. that new bowling ball i got? it's in the trunk in some lot in southeast right now. i... well, i am really sorry that this happened. all i could think in that split second when you realize you're getting into an accident is that i knew my life would be different, and not in a better way, after this.

the up side is, i got to see the biggest chair in the world, from the tow truck on the way to the lot. and i do have a very good insurance policy, which will make this less painful for me in the short run. i wonder if somehow in the past few weeks i've been learning a lesson of some sort. or there is some kind of justice being meted out. but that's really a silly way of thinking of it; things just happen.

i want my car back so bad.

fortunately, there's not an overabundance of physical "ouch" involved. there will be some financial ouch and maybe some psychological ouch, but i just burned my thumb. thank goodness.

Eeek. I'm glad the air bag didn't hurt you (big concern for us short wimmen). And very glad you're not really banged up. What's the prognosis for the Aspire?

Aspire: Total loss.
It's very, very sad. I went and took pictures of it, I really hope they come out. I kind of weirdly have pictures of all the cars I have ever had. The people at the lot where it was left thought I was an alien, but when I went to get my stuff out of it my voice was cracking and I was trying not to cry. I'm a dork that way. Anyways, the air bag saved my face - I was very glad for it. It did hurt me, but only from the small chemical burn on my thumb. If it hadn't been there I'd be... well, I don't wanna think about it.

I've already looked at one Aspire in Glen Burnie, and I'm going to check out another one in Gaithersburg tomorrow.

This is Jenna. What is this? somekind of cosmic joke.

GOD: You know, I haven't had a good run of car accidents in a while, I'll just find a nice little white collar, mid to late 20s group, and, BAM!. Sure, it'll put them out of commission for a while, but what else to do I have to do. I'm so awesome. HEHEHEHEHE.

Total number of accidents since March 17th: 5. Jenna/Shawn, Jack, Nate,Scott and now, Kim.

I honestly feel for you!
