I'm a good driver

This is what I did one week after I moved to Naperville, 20 minutes after I got a job, and half a second after I looked down.

Brace yourself.

That's the bad news. But let me give you all the good news to make it seem like I'm a positive person.

1.) Nobody was injured . . . aside from some uncomfortable whiplash.

2.) The Monster energy drink I bought earlier that day survived as well.

3.) The other car looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. ( it was my fault)

4.) It happened here and not in Nevada . . . or somewhere in between. This is considered good because my brother lives here and he can tell me what to do.

5.) I just got a replacement title.

I know there are probably a lot of questions. Especially if I'm related to you and this post is how you're finding out. Just know, that it could've been worse, and if I didn't tell you it's because I was scared to and talking about it is embarrassing. I feel like a terrible driver and the thought of ever driving again is a little terrifying.

But just to be clear: I was not drunk. I was not texting. And the job is at a restaurant.

I feel like this should be a response to Omar because my verification word is "avoll."

Oh wow, I'm glad everyone's okay. Your car looks much like my car when I had my first crash. Oof. I feel you on the being scared to drive after part.

Don't feel bad; one year ago this month, I did the same thing. Got a broken collarbone to show for it. Congrats on your new job though, and well, being alive!

Oh my! It's a miracle that no one was seriously hurt. By the looks of the car, one can say assume that someone was severely wounded. =)
