Attack of the killer 3-ring binder
On the 18th of this month, Jared, Nancy, and I were driving to Praise Team Practice (by the way, for those of you who don't know- I joined the praise team at Restored, and now I actually sing in front of people). My music binder was sitting on the dash, and as we made a right turn, the binder slid over toward Jared, and freakishly wedged itself in between the door and the steering wheel, so Jared couldn't straighten out the car. We just continued turning right, onto the sidewalk and into a cement wall. It was my side that was hit, and I am the only one who was injured. I have whiplash, but am being taken care of by my chiropractor. Jared and Nancy were both completely fine- thank God. After the accident, Jared asked the cop if we were going to be cited, and he said, "For what? Bad luck?" So we didn't get a ticket. We get our car back on the 4th, and we are renting until then. Luckily it wasn't totaled. The damages were $6500, of which we only have to pay $500. It totally sucked, but it could of been a lot worse, and now we can have a good laugh about it. Remember not to put anything on your dash!
