About a month ago I got an invitation from Karen to treat me to pedicure, manicure and lunch for my birthday. It's actually Sunday but she had Friday off so we made the date. Steve's mom came over to watch Cooper and all was set. We left around 9:00 am and headed to Walmart. We were going to use their salon plus what is a girls day out without first having to buy some diapers. We finished up with the nails around 11:30 and headed to El Nopal. We were stopped in front of the restaurant, turn signal on, waiting for traffic to clear, I could already taste the white queso, when this happened...... This picture doesn't really show how bad it was. Her trunk was smashed in so when the trunk was down in looked worse. At first we were both in shock, I mean it wasn't like we just stopped suddenly, we had been stopped long enough to let a at least 4-5 cars passed. It probably didn't help her car either that a truck probably twice the size of her Civic was what hit it. I have to give it to Karen, she didn't panic. If it would have my car I don't think I could have stayed as calm. There was a nice gentleman who stopped to make sure we were okay and offered himself as a witness, he wanted to make sure the cops knew that we were in fact stopped for a while and had our turn signal on. It all happened so fast I am still in a little shock, it was my first car accident. I almost made it 30 years. Most importantly, Karen & I are both going good and believe or not neither one of us are sore, as of yet. We both agreed if we do end up with soreness or tightness or recurring headaches in the next few days we are going to the doctor just for documentation. But I think we will be fine, another good reason to buy a Honda!!!!
Karen has also posted on her blog, click here for her account. At the end she gives a good driving lesson on why to never turn your steering wheel until you actually go to turn. She may have saved my life! But boy I do wish I could have had some queso.
