A Salute to the Saturn

So yesterday I became amongst the members of the Dumb Ass Family.
I'm fine! My car well she is not. Let me explain... Well the corner where I live is west facing and you have to turn east to get to the main street out of my area. As soon as you turn that corner on a cold and rather bright early morning you are blinded by they sun.

This is what happened to me yesterday morning. I had pulled over to let my car warm up a bit more and to let the miss firing engine settle. As I was going to pull out I failed to realize that there was a truck in front of me and smashed right into the back end of a 1998 Tachoma.

Yup; I had barely been awake for 30 mins and already I had managed to ruin my car. Great Brod! Just Great!

Thankfully the guy who's truck my car was now attached to was home and was a very understanding and nice man. His truck came away pretty much unscathed, I'll have to replace the back bumper, and we had a nice chat about what we like most about our neighbourhood. While the cops filled out the paper work.

I did manage to get a $172 ticket for failed to produce my proper insurance material because someone failed to place it in the vehicle. Other than that I will replace his bumper, see what can be done with the Saturn and go and buy a bus pass. Yay for the looser cruiser.

I'm so sorry to hear about the Saturn! I'm glad you're okay, but bummed that you had to experience that! It totally sucks! Thinking of you as I go into tech this weekend! xoxo
