Shaking Things Up

22 Oct

Our car got totaled yesterday. Dave was driving. He’s fine.

I like to get all the information out in the open real quick. See? All the information you need is right there for you … Everything you could want to know. Your questions have been pre answered.

This comes at an unnerving time as Dave just recently survived a biking accident.  Luckily, as I stated, Dave is fine. But the compounded effect of having a rain cloud the shade of catastrophe over your head is hard to take.

Usually when you get in an accident you can take solace is the fact that it’s unlikely to happen again soon.  So yeah, It’s rough but at least you got it out of the way.

Maybe thats just me. You know. Sally Sunshine.

His bad luck is systematically eradicating ever form of  transportation I have. The car was totaled. So  Two weeks ago the bike, today the car… Maybe tomorrow he can take me out at the knees.

Anyway now I have to do all this big kid stuff with insurance and having a job with no way to easily get to it.   Being an adult sucks at times like this.  It’s these moments that make me appreciate childhood. Or even that period when I didn’t think I was a child but happily lapped pup the privileges of identifying as one regardless.

I think I’m being forced into walking everywhere for the sake of my health.  Nothing else got me exercising so God decided that I can either walk to work or i can be fat and poor.  I can’t imagine a better plan.

So I guess I should be thankful. After all, thanks to Dave totaling the car I have a workout program I have no choice but to stick to. And on the other bright side, at least Dave has been in two accidents and it’s unlikely he’ll be in a third anytime soon.

Maybe I’ll lock him inside just to be sure.

    I think Dave might need to be placed in a rubber room for awhile, as you know these things do seem to come in threes. You should probably steer clear of him for a month or so, so you don’t end up being collateral damage!

      haha I’m a little attached to the man with the rain cloud above him – perhaps this is wise advice. 🙂

      we actually got some unfortunate news tonight that I certainly think would count as the third in the line up – perhaps we’re through the tunnel!!

    Either that or just make him wear a bouncy rubber suit. 🙂

      haha this is really the best solution, isn’t it? I would feel a lot better, that’s for sure.

    Jeez, take it easy out there you two! I’m glad nobody was hurt – good luck getting through this. Let me know if you need any insurance advice – that’s my real job, you know.

      Well we did just get this big scary packet in the mail. Hopefully it leads to money 🙂 Thanks for the open invitation to pester you!

    I’m glad Dave is okay…that’s crazy. I hope that things work out, and the insurance comes through.
