Friday the 13th really is a day for bad luck! Let me explain.... On Friday night Logan and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day a day early because we both had to work on V-Day. I was already out and about so I met Logan at Applebee's for what was a very fun and relaxing dinner, and left in our separate cars to go home and watch Prince Caspian together. I followed Logan (he was driving our nice car, thank goodness!) in my little old Honda and we were almost home when we got split up on the dreaded 17th street. Getting split up wasnt really a big deal but when I went to switch lanes, this crazy lady in a minivan sped up to cut me off causing me to have to swerve back into my lane and rear-end the car in front of me! I didn't hit the car in front of me very hard, but for some reason my airbags went off and almost blew my head off! After the initial shock of the exploding airbags, I figured out that I had wrecked and then noticed that the entire car was full of smoke and smelled absolutely horrible! (So not only do the airbags blow your head into the backseat, but they smell like someone lit a bucket of pee on fire!) When I got out of the car I saw that I had also caused the car in front of me to rear-end the car in front of them! CRAP! Logan turned around to rescue me and help me deal with the angry people in the other cars and by the end of the night it all turned out to be ok.. Only 2 out of the 3 cars were damaged and it was only a fender-bender. The bummer part is that our Honda is considered "totaled" by the insurance company because it costs more to replace the airbags alone than what our car is worth, so we are now on a car search! If anyone has any good ideas where to look for a sturdy car for me to drive, let me know!! Now that it has been a few days after the wreck I have come to find out that I am TERRIFIED of driving now! I guess a wreck was a good but unfortunate way to teach me to watch where I am going!
