It was just a fender bender...I feel the need to clarify since I used that song for my title. What qualifies it to "rear-ended", though?
If it wasn't obvious already, I got rear-ended tonight when the woman behind me thought I had pulled out, but I most definitely had not. I can't imagine being in a worse accident because this was scary enough. In that split second it was incredibly loud and I was so confused as to what happened. Everything in my car flew. Backwards AND forwards somehow. CDs were everywhere. The change in my "emergency coffee" drawer flew out. My headband came off of my head.
Then we had to exchange information. Quite difficult to have good penmanship while shaking.
If I understood anything about cars I would tell you how my car is. The bumper is not happy, but the rest of it is fine. I'm VERY proud of my Elantra for staying strong. I've heard those horror stories about cars that just crumple when another car even looks at them so I was glad to see my car hold up to the impact.
My worry-happy self though is pushing away the "Am I dizzy?" and "Does my head hurt?" thoughts. Tomorrow's a big day and I've got bigger things to think about...like setting my three alarms for 545am!
