Speaking of earthquakes

Sudden acceleration, I swear!

At 12:35 this morning, Pal Nancy heard a crash, as did our neighbors, but no one could determine its source until the paper girl knocked on our neighbor’s door at 7 and, after handing her her paper, asked whether she knew she had a car in her side yard. Oops! A Toyota SUV had joined them during the night.

No one hurt, although some shrubs and the porch were brutally assaulted and the spinning collision managed to bash in just about every body panel on the car. I’m just spekelating here, but MacKenzie’s and black ice make for a bad combination. Just saying ….

    MacKenzie’s, black ice AND a Toyota! Trifecta!

      Fortunately for the the driver, after failing to extricate her car from its predicament, she managed to walk home, and by the time the police arrived this morning, they could cite her only for failure to keep right, or whatever. But Honey, maybe you want to think things over, eh?

    Dude –
    I don’t think this was an accident. Did she get the house wrong? I am not frigging paying her then. Did she dress up in a black Ninja suit like I asked? And so much for no snow, right?
    And maybe this one wasn’t mine. She could just be a literary critic. Or any customer of yours from the past 7 years that you sold your “This is Greenwich – you can’t lose” real estate schtick to. Or the GAR. Dude, the possibilities are endless!!
    Your Pal,

    I take it she didn’t call the police and just hoofed it? And the neighbors didn’t hear a thing? Now that’s what I call good fortune.

    You got it, Toyota!

  4. Sounds like she may have pulled a “Teddy,” although thankfully with no fatalities involved.

    Hey Ex-Pat, CF, Walt and Cobra,

    Uh huh, yeah, scout’s honor, none of you have ever driven home on a Friday night, in the snow, three sheets to the wind?

    Why do I not believe that for a minute?

      There but for the grace of God and all that …. But fortunately, long ago. Some things are best stopped in one’s early twenties.

    She needs to spend Saturday night working in A&E.
