¿uʍop ǝpısdn plɹoʍ ʎɯ

So you might make a wild guess that I'm going to rant about my life being frakked over Lady Luck's personal pedobear.
Well, no. Not really.
No, this is about my car getting frakked over and turned over as I scurry out of it realize several minutes later that I was in a horrible car accident and I didn't even know it.

So, yesterday (Tuesday, August 24) I was out driving in the country and I lost control of my vehicle and crashed into the ditch of a road with no shoulder.
Now, if you guess that I was:
a. On the Phone
b. Texting
c. Messing with my iPod
d. Messing with the Radio
e. Getting cigarettes
f. Not paying attention.
Then you guessed wrong.

It's truly bizarre, not because it happened or because of the circumstances, just because of the memory loss. But I've been able to work out a general idea of what happened, although I don't remember the exact impact or much of anything after losing control.
So, here's what happened, to the best of my memory:
(Things I can't remember in Bold & Italics)
I was driving down one of the back road with no shoulder that's lined by deep ditches. At some point I see something close to my lane that made me swerve to the right and my right tires went off the ditch.
I panicked and turned into the street, over correcting. I felt myself lose control as I was crossing the road and I turned to my right again. The car spun clockwise out of control and the left side of the vehicle turned back to the ditch I drove into the first time it flipped into the ditch and landed on the hood.
The air bag deployed, probably knock me out for a few seconds. I dunno. I scurried out of my seat down onto the ceiling without undoing my seatbelt and grabbing my compass and my brass case.
I'm guessing while the witness called 9-1-1 (The emergency line, here in the U.S.) I opened my door and walked out onto to the grass.
According to the EMTs, when they arrived I was standing in the grass with my phone in one hand and the compas in another.
They got into the ambulance where they checked me out.
The next thing I knew, after losing control, I was sitting in the ambulance asking what happened. I laughed when I realized I wasn't dreaming. I couldn't remember a damn thing and I found that hysterical.

Emma nearly tore my ass up after she found out. She remembered a couple weeks ago when I burned out as we both pulled out of the church parking lot and guessed I had let my emotions get the best of me. Really fun to get her grouchy sometimes, but I explained myself and she was just happy to know I was fine.

Maria flipped she found out. In fact we were planning to go see Scott Pilgrim this week. Alas with my car totalled I could no longer pick her up and drive her off to Poplar Bluff with me.
So to Plan B: get Eleshia and our friend Jennifer to join us to make it a foursome.... Get your mind out of the gutter.
I would never....
Well, then again I am a single man....
Nope, still wouldn't.

So I really want to see the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World film.
It looks absolutely cute, fun, exciting and funny. So we're on to see it when/if it plays here in Dexter. So fingers crossed. If not, then I'll rent it when it comes out and invite the three over for a movie night.
Either way, I want to hang out with Maria sometimes. I want to hang out Eleshia sometimes. And Jennifer, of course.
Bottom Line: I want to see SCOTT PILGRIM vs. THE WORLD
