Yesterday I had quite the experience. I'd gone in to town with Shiloh, to do some quick shopping and stop for a smoothie at Jamba Juice since they were having their Buy One Get One special. (Only two more days left!) After coming out of Jamba Juice, full of Peanut Butter Moo'd, we got into my car, I reversed out of my parking space, shifted gears, and started to move forward. I didn't get very far before I heard a mighty "Crunch." Startled, I stopped, unsure as to what had just happened. I thought I had just driven over something in the road but Shiloh quickly realized that we had just made contact with the bumper of another vehicle. I turned back into my parking spot, we got out and exchanged information, and after the other party had left, I looked a little closer at my bumper.

Now I have a tiny little car, and the vehicle that hit me had a pretty strong steel bumper, so the damage left on my bumper was rather substantial. I felt sad that my car had to go through this, and tried to figure out how I could have prevented it from happening, but soon realized that there was no use trying to undo what had been done.

Amazingly enough, there are still small miracles in events such as this. Somehow, my brake lightbulb survived, even though everything around it got smashed. Thankfully the vehicle backed into my bumper instead of into my door, so I was kept safe. My car is old, and this isn't the first time I've had somebody smash a part of it, so it wasn't as difficult to handle as the first time somebody smashed a passenger door at night and didn't leave a note. So while I'm not happy it had to happen, at least nobody was hurt. And that is the most important thing of all.
