Stupidity-induced insomnia

I can't sleep tonight.

I'm a little on the sore side and I feel like too much of an idiot to sleep.

I'd ventured out to Taco Bell for a late-night snack but abandoned the plan when I saw the drive-thru line and headed home.

On the way, I was involved in an accident.

I looked down for a second like an idiot and when I looked up there was a car in front of me. One I hadn't seen before that moment.

I didn't even have enough time to think "OH F***!" before the crash sound and the airbags popped.

Sans a scratch or two I'm fine.

As far as I could tell, the people in the other car were ok too. A couple of them went to the hospital to get checked out, but there wasn't any blood or anything that I could see, so I don't think it was anything big.

The car's banged up, but it doesn't look like anything a good body shop can't handle.

The cops that came out there were nice and, with a few laughs had me feeling relaxed and not like as big an idiot. Naturally, I got the obligatory "you rear-ended someone, here's your ticket" ticket. I'll go down and deal with that next week.

I've already reported the accident through GEICO's website and they should be getting with me sometime today about how all this'll work out. The cops and the wrecker driver AAA sent both told me that GEICO's really easy to work with about this sort of stuff, so that makes me feel a little better.

Now if I could just get some sleep . . .

Glad you are OK my man. Airbags can beat the crap out of you and soreness is to be expected so I am very glad no one was hurt worse.

Don't feel stupid. Happens to everyone. At least you didn't hit a METRO bus.
