The "January of 2008 Curse" lives on...

Well, let's friggin' hope it's just a January curse and not a 2008 one.
Saturday Janet and I went to Thunder Valley to gamble all our hard-earned money. We were winning big; i was up about $250 (money janet gave me..heh..heh...?). When i lost all my money, it was time to go.
I wanted to sleep on the ride home becuase i just wanted to be home. It's never a deep sleep; you can hear the car cruising down the road, the blinker when it's turned on, the sound of the rain underneath the tires, the sound of a drunk driver slamming in to your rear.

WHAM!
I opened my eyes and Janet calmly & panicly says "we've just been hit!" "where's the car?" "oh my god, i need to call 911." "did you see the people crossing the road?"

I am still coming to when i hear her barrage of internal thoughts being spoken externally. I turned around and did, indeed, see people running across the street. I got out and ran over to them, they barely spoke english. Me thinks it's the guy who hit us buddies and they quickly drive off. I'm assuming they've been drinking as well.

I am looking for the guy who hit us fearing he just took off when i saw his car down the embankment upside down. I freaked out and ran down the hill. There are people gathering on the other side of the fence trying to call 911. i hear the guy moving and tell him it's okay that nothing is on fire or ready to explode...he crawls out, covered in blood. but is fine. of course he's fine; he's drunk. when you get in a wreck you either want to be drunk or asleep. i was one; he was the other. But he's in major deep shit.

the cops & fire trucks show up and put us in the back of the cruiser becuase it's pouring out. I don't like being in the back of the cruiser. it's usually never a good thing.

anyway, long story, medium, they hauled that guy off, the officer took us home (after he asked us if there was anyone we could call to come pick us up. at 3am!) and we're all good.

One thing that is weird about car accidents, you can relive it in your head and hear the exact sound of the crash. Like you're there again.

I am really glad you're OK! If you're not going to sue, make sure somebody pays for really good pain relieving drugs! We do not want to ever lose you...

Good Lord, what a smash! Clearly this is not your month. I'm not a religious gal but I think I might send up some prayers for you to have something great happen in February. Maybe have a Hollywood hunk fall madly in love with you, and have him whisk you off to the bahamas for a spa vacation. Wouldn't than be nice? If I need to amend the prayer, let me know before I get going with it.

Can we call a do-over? I think at this point, you are entitled to one.

Holy shit! He must have really hit you & Janet hard. Her car is crushed!
Hey, you know I'm all for drinking. I'm so much for it, I'm in the booze business, but one thing we do not tolerate is drinking & driving. Yikes! With all the education and information out there, I can't believe people still do this. Idiots! We had our LCBO re-do Christmas party last weekend (our first one got cancelled because of a big snowstorm) and we took the bus there and a cab home. It's not worth the risk. Will this guy learn? Let's hope so. Even though this was a bad thing, it could have been worse, right? So things are looking up. :o) Chill at home and have a Stoli. And kiss Kody. You've already eaten his saliva, so a big smooch won't hurt.
