Miatas & Big Trucks Don’t Mix

On Tuesday night, The Worm and I were involved in an accident. Obviously we're still here and we're ok - the ordeal was frightening all the same. We are very lucky.

A flatbed semi was parked in the road, at night, nothing to indicate he was stopped (and did I mention *parked*?) in the road. The Worm didn't see him or realize he was stopped until it was too late - he slammed on the brakes and we hit.

We were told had it not been a lower-to-the-ground flatbed, we would've went right on under it. Not a nice thought.

It's still very surreal to me - though the pain in my tailbone (which I found out today is not broken, just painfully "strained") is all too real. The Worm is scraped up from the airbag - and these are our only injuries. Did I mention we are extremely, very and amazingly lucky?

Tweeze thinks Guitar Rockstar was looking out for us, and I can't argue that. It's almost as if we, inside, were in a plastic bubble - the windshield wasn't even cracked.

Our precious Maggie May - a 1992 that had just rolled over 100,000 miles a few weeks ago and was driving fine as always - is totaled. We're sad, but - again - just glad to be okay.

I wish I had something more enlightening or even pithy to say - but the whole thing is sort of this numb lump in my head; almost as if it didn't even happen to us.

I think I can speak for everyone when I say, I am SO GLAD this year is almost over!

    Thanks for the unique tips shared on this web site. I have seen that many insurance firms offer shoppers generous reductions if they elect to insure several cars together. A significant amount of households possess several autos these days, particularly those with elderly teenage children still residing at home, along with the savings with policies might soon increase. So it pays off to look for a great deal.
