Dark evening, like the day. The black sedan turns too quickly, brakes.
About an inch away. That was almost the end of austere. Almost.

Hi Aust,

X-(

And you were tellin me bikes aint safe cars are
X-( again...


I think universal rules apply...do what we can to be safe and then hope that the other vehicle has its brakes intact...

Aahhh! Austere is okay? Nerves are jumbled for sure. I almost was in a fender-bender once. Very scary.

Will begin checking with ppl on things I'd like taken care of in the event. :)
Just wondering how to word it.

mystic rose said...

austere said...

Yup, the post is related to this. Already checked with the ppl concerned for the books.
:). Also reassured them this was worst case, that I'm good for long years.

Ah, was almost taken out the same way a couple of weeks ago by a BMW. I glared. You dare hit me? I'll make you very, very sorry for it.

Where do they think they are going so fast and without paying attention!

Two weeks back, another person I know solely through blogs too had such an experience. "'My brain sent a signal' It's all over'"that's hopw he described it.

austere said...

BMW, sedan.. eh :) we do get them right, yes?
I was startled but did cuss majorly later.

No signal, nuffin. " oh My Gawd" and heartbeats. :)
