In A Car Accident Today
No one was hurt. But it was my fault, there was damage to both cars and I was driving Vicki's car. So I feel lousy on all counts. I've been in car accidents a couple of times before, but only as a passenger.

Sure. if your track record holds you're not due for an accident for another 37 years.

I'm glad everyone is okay, even if the car is dinged! ::smishes::

Thanks. I know that's the important thing, but money is so tight now since I'm not working...

I'm glad everyone's ok. Being in a car crash is never fun. I'm sorry you had to go through one.

Thanks. I guess I didn't *have* to - if only I'd been more alert.

True but no one's perfect and alertness can be elusive even on good days.

That's true. The first car accident I was ever in (at least I think so - the first I remember) I was four and your dad was five and Harty and Kayo were two and a baby respectively and our Mom was driving and we hit a deer! No human injuries, just a deer one, but I can still remember the impact...

I'm sorry you experienced this but am glad no one was hurt. Is the damage repairable? I've been there; I wish I could say it's made me a more attentive driver.

I'm generally a good driver (albeit a lousy parker). But I was late to return the car to Vicki (I had borrowed it to take Doran back to school) and I guess that made me inattentive.

Soo sorry. I'm glad no one was hurt, but I know being in an accident is pschologically jarring.

It is, even at the best of times. And these are not the best of times, not by a long shot.

Oh, that must feel awful. Well, if we as a species insist on going around in big hunks of metal all the time, they're going to bump sometimes.

Glad no one was hurt.

Thanks. Yeah, I guess some accidents are inevitable. I went 30-some years as a driver without ever being in an accident while I was at the wheel. I'd like to think that's testament to my good driving but it's mostly from living in cities and relying on public transit for most of my adult life, driving only occasionally.

Loved the last chapter! I sent it back with comments yesterday.

I'm sure that people who drive everywhere all the time have less stellar driving records.

Sorry I didn't respond to yesterday's email. Thanks for the lovely words on the chapter. Lux was also excited about it but hasn't sent his beta yet.

It is important to note that Warren is in X-Men uniform because he never has been before. (for X3, we only see him like that in posters).

They made those posters for you!

So are we sure enough about the wrap party that I should make bus reservations? The price goes up as it gets closer...

I'm really, really glad nobody was hurt -- that's the important thing (although I know the whole thing with the car is maddening). And yes, things like this are, unfortunately, more likely to happen when we're distracted by worrying about other things...

Yes, I do know I'm lucky that the only damage was to my bank balance, the cars, and my pride.

As you know, I've been in two really scary car accidents as an adult ... I had nightmares for ages. I hope the aftermath is not too bad for you.

{{{hugs}}}. No, this really was not a scary one and I shouldn't whine about it. I'm mostly kicking myself for being stupid and inattentive.

You should whine all you want! I'm just a bit useless in commiserating about car accidents because I sort of freeze up like a scared rabbit. It's like when people have cancer, I find it hard to come up with supportive messages like "you'll beat it!" because my family's experience was not positive. But I am working on getting over it and trying to be more there for people.

It's the worst when you think you might have avoided it, too. Especially when there's all those times when you weren't paying attention and everything turned out fine. It's karma, I guess.

I hope the other driver didn't yell at you.
