Yesterday morning, I was visiting a prisoner at the county jail. (That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.) Unfortunately, upon leaving the jail, I got into a little accident in the parking lot.

The damaged corner of my rear bumper

As I was backing out of my parking spot, a lady in the opposite spot was backing out as well…and we collided. Or rather, our cars collided. After a moment of stunned silence, I pulled up into my spot again, got out of my car, and inspected the damage. The paint was scraped off of the corner of my bumper, and there were a couple small dents. Her car was mostly untouched (she had the fortune of owning a bumper made out of real metal).

The other driver’s reaction was along the lines of an irritated “DIDN’T YOU SEE ME?” I guess I could have asked the same question.

Anyway, after seeing there was no serious damage, we decided just to drive off. There’s no way it would have been worth the hassle of a police report, insurance claims, and a ticked-off woman yelling at me. 😕

Tomorrow…I will be blogging on the the latest trend of being “spiritual but not religious.” I think you can already guess what my opinion on the subject is, but hopefully it will be a helpful (and possibly even coherent) essay.
