I've had enough confrontations with my mortality, thank you.

I got the scare of my life on my way home from school today.

No, it wasn't an army of spiders (though that did happen on Saturday while I was getting out the Christmas decorations...I'm not going into my basement ever again :stare:). It wasn't a clown. It wasn't a horde of sentient mushrooms.

No, today while I was on the way home from school I was nearly in a car accident. :stare:

I was sitting in the passenger street and we were coming to a stop at a traffic light, when another car came out of nowhere and nearly slammed into us.

Right.

Where.

I.

Was.

Sitting. :stare:

The driver of the car I was in managed to get out of the way just in time, and the other car sped off before I could fully process what had just happened.

I had a bit of an increased heart rate for the rest of the ride home, but when I got home I was greeted at the door by my kitten, who was rubbing up against me and meowing happily because mama was finally home.

That was the straw that broke the camel's back. I broke down right there in the front hallway.

I'm still extremely pale, shaky, I've been pretty fucking snippy, and I've dropped my crochet hook about thirty times since I picked it up when I got home to try to calm down.

I don't think I'll be sleeping properly for a while.

:icontealdeerplz::iconsaysplz:I was nearly in a car accident that could have killed me this afternoon, someone hold me.

Bonus complaint: I tried to crochet a dishcloth and it somehow turned into a hat. I'm confus.

Anti-complaint 1: I WON NANOWRIMO 2012.

Anti-complaint 2: I crocheted a pretty nifty pink hat today.

Anti-complaint 3: I'M NO LONGER SINGLE.

I would shit myself. I would also shit myself about the box of spiders. Fuck that noooooise....
By the way don't worry about people telling you to get over it. We all have fears and they'd probably shit their knickers in your position too.

If spiders start flying then I'm leaving the planet.

It's alright, I'm much better now. I was just extremely shaken up. :lol:

Just be thankful you weren't actually hit. It would have done a number on you if the driver didn't get away in time.

I was in a car accident once, bitch almost made my car fall over the cross intersection bridge.

I was in a car accident in the rain once, it was very serious and scared the shit out of me. I ended up on the shoulder and took the hit in the back quarter panel so I wasn't hurt. I still can't drive in heavy downpours to this day :saddummy:

To make it worse, my car was totaled and I was very sad because I loved that car. It was my own fault, though. I should've replaced all four tires instead of just the front two. I would not have hydroplaned if I had done that.

Jeez that's scary. :noes:

I'm scared shitless that I'll hydroplane or something when I'm driving when it's wet. It's the only time I don't go pretty fast (I once blew into a turn perfectly at 45 mph, my mom damn near had a heart attack :lol:).

Holy fucking shit that's terrifying. D:
Glad you're alive and all though.

Goodness I've been in a few car accidents and many near accidents, myself. They still manage to each be just as, if not more so, terrifying than the last. Every. Single. Time.

No, I ripped it apart, tried again, and ended up with an intentional hat for a baby.
