Newscoma Has A Wreck

19 08 2007

I’m home.

Someone backed into my car while I was stopped getting gas on I-40, didn’t have a lick of insurance and Canadian Elvis fans with several Elvis Impersonators watched the whole thing while I was hyperventilating (not really, just calming down from getting hit really, really hard.)

Everyone’s fine and it really is nothing more than a very much destroyed tail light. The woman who hit me is from California. This is going to be fun. Honestly, we will see how it goes. Her big SUV wasn’t damaged at all.


I’m not upset although I hate dealing with mechanics. These things happen. That’s why they call them “accidents.” I was sitting in park in the car and she just didn’t see me.

And, if you have a crowd of Elvis fans with rhinestone purses gawking AND the added bonus of Elvis Impersonators hanging out with you during times like this, it’s not too bad actually.

Thanks for the hug. It’s not too terrible and can be fixed.
So glad to meet you yesterday.

Well shite. I’d say “NO FUN!” except it sounds like the gaggle of Elvises coulda been something to see! Really am glad you’re fine.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
It’s frustrating, but I got hit by a car with a Canadian Elvis Impersonator watching from the sidelines.
There were three buses filled with these folks.

Destiny or whatnot.
Squirrel Queen and I were fine and Badger was behind us so she didn’t see it.
I think the Elvis tour buses though made her a bit claustophobic.
One again, thanks.

Omigosh!! *HUGS*

Yikes. Glad you’re okay. Only you could garner an Elvis audience for a fender bender.

It was freaky! They were all from Ohio or Michigan or something. They had to open up the shower rooms so we could get through the line better to piss. It was truly crazy, some of the women were invading the men’s bathroom. It was nuts I tell you! So yeah I couldn’t wait to get out of there. Sorry bout your car, that sucks.

I’m glad you’re okay, too, and glad we finally had the chance to meet yesterday. I hope you had fun before hitting the road. 🙂

I did. Thanks Rob. It will be okay. I keep saying that it really could have been so much worse than it was.
And I really enjoyed meeting you as well. It was a fun weekend.

that bites – but at least you’re getting a great story out of it

I’m so glad you’re OK. I hate hate hate people who don’t watch where they’re driving in parking lots.

[…] When you are stuck on the interstate, the best thing you can do is take the next exit, which to no one’s surprise was where I had the Elvis issue back last August. […]

[…] Pilot station at Exit 143 hates me. Last year, you might remember my Elvis Impersonators wreck at this infamous truck stop. I think I’m jinxed at this […]
