So I had a very weird premonition a couple of times when I was getting into my car this week. I thought I was going to get hit from behind by a car. And so what happened on Wednesday?
My car got rear ended.
Not sure how or why I get this feeling, but my sixth sense is pretty good. For example, I know when I’m going to win something (T.V., Bingo, sunglasses, slot machines). And once I even knew that my house was going to blow up soon after I bought it (I had visions when I backed up my car that my house was going to explode). That happened after my crazy father decided to bang on my furnace “to see if the pipe was metal?”. Its a long story and involved 3 foot flames emancipating from my furnace.
Anyhow I called a real furnace man to inspect it soon after getting repeated premonitions that my house was going to explode and you know what he said to me as he was shaking his head? You are one lucky lady. The pipe was dislodged and gas was leaking. “What does that mean?”, I asked. “Just that your house would have blown up and so would your neighbours.” Lovely. Thanks dad for tinkering with my furnace.
Maybe I shouldn’t have driven when I had that sensation that I was going to get into an accident. Sigh.
I was attempting to make a turn right and BANG I got hit by a white car. I put on my hazard signals and got out of my car. I asked the woman if she was alright. She seemed distraught. She told me she was awfully sorry and that her mother was in the hospital and she was going there right now to see her. My bumper didn’t seem too bad and the trunk had a dent in it. I went to see if the trunk still opened and closed. It did. So I told the woman not to worry about it. My car was old and I needed a new one anyway. She insisted I take down her drivers license and information. I told her I wasn’t going to do anything with it anyway and she gave me a hug. Hope she pays it forward.
I took my car to my mechanic today. He told me that I’d need $400 to fix the trunk and another $400 for the bumper. My car is only worth about $2000 so I said forget it. Wasn’t worth it. As long as it still drives me to my next adventure, I was okay with it!
And my next adventure begins TOMORROW! Hurray!
