So in a previous post about the car accident, I suggested that I got a flat and was stuck on the side of the road with SSL. Turns out I was wrong. Well, I could be right. I could have been stuck on the side of the road with SSL, but I haven’t confirmed that yet. Luckily, however, AEF is a regular reader and, as she is the official keeper of all my memories, she sent me a correction.
But let me pause for a second.
As I just mentioned, AEF is the keeper of all my memories. For those of you who kept up with my previous blog, you know all about this fact. For those of you who missed it, she has a brutally long memory and can recall things from my past that I would prefer she could forget – as I have. But no such luck for this girl.
Anyway, so AEF emailed me this morning to tell me that she read my latest post on the car accident and wanted to pass along the following info:
p.s. That was me you got the flat with – hanging out on the left shoulder of I-95 just before the Baltimore tunnel. It sucked. 🙂
You’d think that this detailed missive would spark a memory for me. Okay, so I can now remember being stuck on the side of the road with a flat. And I’m recalling some thoughts of being grateful that we didn’t get stuck in the tunnel. Because that would have sucked. As I explained to MJ in the car the other night after she picked me up from the Perryville Travel Plaza, I prefer bridges to tunnels because I would prefer to NOT drown. Drowning seems terrible. MJ pointed out that you could still drown if you fall from a bridge. Yeah, I’ve thought of that. But I’m hopeful that the fall will kill me.
Anyway, that’s it. I don’t know how we got out of that little pickle. Maybe AEF can fill me in when she gets to town in late January.
Yup – that’s right. AEF is coming for a visit and I can’t be more excited. She called me right before Christmas to say she was thinking of coming here for my birthday. I think she just wanted to know that, even if it doesn’t stop snowing in Chicago, she can get out of town for a few days. Frankly, I don’t care what the reason was. I’m just looking forward to a visit. And the roller derby. HC is forcing us to go to a roller derby match. Whatever, I’m almost always up for a spectacle.
