A simple plan



"I (teen girl 1) sneezed and you know you can't keep your eyes open when you sneeze."

I had a simple plan. Car needs servicing so I'll take a spare bike to my friend so she can ride with me tonight, drop off the car, then ride to work, but I didn't account for teenage drivers. Yeah, you know where I'm going with this. So, I stop in front of the Unitarian Church because the Pius teens have the road clogged up and WHAMMO! Then WHAMMO again. A red ford escort had smashed into the back of my car and a red jeep into that. My stomach lurches - MY BIKES!!! Ahhrgggg! blankety blank blank blank! However, upon inspection, the bikes were OK and so was the car. Only the rack got wacked. So, the morning got a little more complicated for me and a couple of teenage girls.

holy smokes, well you sound like you escaped injury, and your bikes did, so those girls are still in trouble I betcha. I used to have to drive down A because I worked at 70th and A, those pius kids make traffic crazy in there. I am glad you and your bikes are ok.

Monkeygirl, it was really funny. The other thing she said was, "My parents are going to yell at me. I've already got two speeding tickets."
