Ding Goes The Car

I was just thinking a few days ago about how lucky I’ve been to have my car remain unscathed for over ten years… until today. Someone backing out of a space at work backed into my driver’s side door.

It looks minor, though who knows in this day-and-age?

The newscast was on-the-air when it happened. Word was passed to our assignment desk and then to Jose, who was running ‘the floor.’

“Can you take bad news before you go on-the-air,” Jose asked? I wanted to go look but he yelled “sixty seconds” and I turned back to the set.

Terry, who hit my car was more shaken up than I was. Amazingly, for me, I was pretty calm. She didn’t aim for me. It’s just a car. It can/will be repaired. Life will go on.

Boy–that is calm for me.

    Geoff, it’s just a car–a method of getting from place to place–not a personal statement or part of your body. I’m just glad no one got hurt.

    I can’t believe there is no pic of the damage….we get pics of everything…even your haircuts.
