critique my wife's driving anymore. we had one HELL of a wreck earlier this year (august 8th,...i'll remember that day until i die,...). after all that happened that day, i'm just glad to still have her and my kids. some stupid junkie hit us going 110 on the highway and basically pit manuevered us and nearly killed us all. the "nearly killed us all" part isn't hyperbole,...when he hit us we were traveling across the bridge that passes over the interstate and he came within 10 feet of pushing us over it into the traffic below. easily the worst day of my life. my kids were freaking out because they were all bruised and cut and scraped, and it didn't help that momma got taken away in an ambulance cause the paramedics were worried about the baby. (she was 7 and 1/2 months at the time). i tore up my wrist (its hard to play guitar in a cast), my wife broke her ankle (we're still dealing with that. yipee for orthoscopic surgeons
), the car got totalled, and i lost my red sox hat in the ditch somewhere. last week we had to testify in court because the city is prosecuting him for the wreck among other things he's done. when the DA asked him why he was going so fast he said "i was just in a hurry, i guess. they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time." i almost came out of my seat and beat the fear of the Lord into that man.
anyway, we drive alot differently now, but i don't sweat the dents or the scuffs or the scratched paint. like Jooooosh said,...it could be worse.
