Once again. Count this one as #6 for me. The sixth car accident I have personally seen behind our house in the last year and two months. Again, remember how I mentioned My Least Favorite Sound? (go there and check out the Dane Cook bit – it never fails to crack me up!)

Well, this evening’s crash didn’t even sound that bad. I heard the screech and a couple of vague *Cruuuncch!*s. Looked out – one SUV on the side of the road with a hanging rear bumper. Figured she had been hit and the other driver took off. Can’t see the full intersection because of a tree. She looked ok – saw her get out of her car and look at the bumper. But then, a couple of minutes later, I hear sirens. Getting louder. And louder. And two police cars show up, soon followed by a siren-y third. Pretty impressive. The police NEVER show up after accidents around here. But I guess there were two other cars sitting in the intersection because I saw them finally pull over after the cops showed up.

Funny thing – our rental manager was just at the house today. He walked through the house and said to me “Oh, the traffic noise doesn’t sound that bad.” We’ve mentioned it as a possible reason for moving. I said something like – well, it’s pretty bad on Friday and Saturday nights. People drive crazy.

And……oh look, it’s a Friday night. And I’ve seen crash #6. And I’m not counting the one that occurred when I was gone that sounded so bad, Sweetie got dressed and ran down to the intersection to make sure the guy who got hit was ok.

Best thing I can say is, 3 police cars are a sight better than one ambulance, any day in my book. Ug. SLOW DOWN PEOPLE.

oh…and also…I’m not counting the accident that Sweetie and I were in that totaled his poor wagon. ‘Cause that was all the way on the other side of the island. Yippee.

Friday’s Feast #15

Want to join in? Check out Friday’s Feast HERE.

If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?

Well, I am already part wolf, so I guess I would be the mother of all current dog breeds. Ha! As for why – they are smart, loyal, family-oriented, and quite often misunderstood. Kind of like me.

What does the color purple make you think of?

Amy Squared and Chelle.

Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?

Roll out of bed…..brush teeth….wash face…..stumble to my office. Usually takes about 5 minutes. Longer if I make a nice breakfast for myself. It’s so nice to work from home in Maui!

Main Course
How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?

On Mom’s side – 4 cousins. I like them, but we live so far apart, I haven’t seen most of them for 10 years or so.

Dad’s side – 5 cousins. Again, we like each other. I am pretty close to two of my cousins who I have spent time with since I was a kid.

Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for. (Example: SFO = Sweet Funny Otter)

How about………Sarcastic Goof
