What I thought would be a normal day started out as anything but. Here I am, minding my own business, stopped at a traffic light and a Toyota SUV rear-ends my car. Not just my car, but my new baby! I was stunned for a moment but then I realized what happened. I got out of the car to see if there was any damage, but not before mouthing “what the f***” to the woman driving the Toyota. She rolled down her window and said sorry.
There wasn’t any visible damage, but I told her I was going to pull into a nearby parking lot just to make sure. I go through the intersection and turn into the parking lot, expecting the Toyota would follow me. That’s what responsible people do. But this crazy woman just keeps on going down the road. Oh heck no!
I rip out of the parking log and chase her down. Lucky for me I have 350 hp and caught up with her quickly. She was going to the same store as I was. How convenient. I won’t go into what I said to her in the parking lot of the store, but I know I scared the crap out of her. Good. I’m glad. Stupid people.
An hour later at another store, I see her. I don’t try to avoid her, but I only have to get a few items. I come out of the store to find that she’s parked right next to me. Now, she’s either the dumbest woman around or she was going to have a comeback. Well, bring it sista, ’cause I was ready. She seemed shocked to see me, even though I was parked there first. She didn’t say anything else to me, but I gave her a constant stink-eye while I was loading my purchases into the trunk.
A reminder people – when you rear end someone, please take a moment to stop and exchange information. Otherwise you might be chased down and dressed down by a crazy lady who doesn’t give a rip if you have kids in your car. I know I’ll feel bad about my behavior and my bad choice of words later, but right now I’m still a bit angry.
Joey and Jennifer are coming over for dinner tonight. Of course I have to entice them with steaks on the grill, but it will be nice to see them. Lizzy is still at the beach.
Okay, on to Book Reviews. I need them. On Amazon. If you have purchased my book or took advantage of the free Sunday downloads I’ve had recently on Amazon, please take a moment and give a review. You don’t have to leave a detailed review, just rate it and say you enjoyed it, if you did. I hope you did. It would mean a lot to me.
Today, I finished all of the red-ink edits and added a few words to the novel. I also created a matrix of characters, plot, sub-plots and scenes. This should get me to a solid ending. Finally, after months of not writing, I’m excited to be working on this again.
I found a new shady place to write during lunch. I used to write at the park and ride at a mall nearby my old job so when I got the new job, I had to do some scouting. Let’s hope the Marriott security doesn’t boot me out.
As usual, Sunday is a day for laundry and I think I need to go do some. I’ll talk at ya’ll later. Have a great rest of the day.
