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!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of
    the best in its niche. Excellent blog!
