Recently, I had a terrible car accident on the freeway going to LA. The accident shut down the 10 freeway with cars and parts all over everywhere. My car was totaled, the trunk was in my back seat. I was taken to the hospital in an ambi because of instant neck soreness. But, I want to discuss what happened before all that. After the accident I couldn’t find my phone. What do you do with no phone? Who do you call with no phone and no numbers committed to memory? I’ve decided to tattoo a few numbers on my body just in case. If those people don’t want to be my emergency numbers down the line, I’ll just tattoo more numbers and cross those out. Where I will put those numbers is up for discussion. Next, with no children or significant other, who do I call? Time to ask around to see who will now be my emergency contact. This is a tuff one for us singles. While in the ER the nurse asked me who is going to help me find my car and clear everything out of it. Another hurdle! I have always depended on me. What if I cannot depend on me all the time? I’d better find a second me to depend on. Fortunately, I have the best friends in the world. Chris and Judy picked me up at the hospital, took me to LA, then took me back to Palm Desert so I didn’t have to drive for a week. Another friend took me car shopping so now I am the proud owner of a new used car with new car payments. Ugggh!
At least I am alive and all my body parts work pretty darn good. I admit that I feel very vulnerable right now, always looking in my rear view mirror… Time to go make my list of volunteers.
Tip of the day: drive with a back pillow and head against the head rest. GOOD POSTURE BECOMES YOU.
