Yesterday was one of those days. You know — the sort of day where in order to pull everything off each task has to happen so succinctly that there is simply no way in hell it’s going to? It was one of those.

Things did not go quite as planned. Demo’s were started late, B&G consultations took longer than expected and I decided to play Bumper Cars on the Bayfront i.e. smash into the backend of a Jeep that was doing nothing but minding its business at a red light. Crash!!
It sounds dramatic, but in reality it actually reminded me very much of riding bumper cars as a kid sans the 6000lb Expedition I was driving at the time.
I was mindfully sitting at the stop light; eating a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut Express, when I caught the glimmer of a Green light (er.. arrow) out of the corner of my eye. Instinct and my desire to get to the office to start my second GB demo of the day on time kicked in and before I knew it there was a loud thud and I see the smile of a very nice young woman looking back at me through her driver side mirror.
If I were a kid — I would have probably intended to smack into the back end of her car, but as an adult I find that is typically frowned upon.
We drove down the Bayfront Connector a ways until we came to an exit, pulled off into a parking lot and kindly exchanged information and laughs. Fortunately, the damage wasn’t significant and a good old fashioned buffing will probably take care of her bumper. My beast wasn’t harmed at all.
I know you want to the see the pix I snapped with my new iPhone so here they are.
Scuff Marks from Bumper Cars
This is why certain countries have outlawed eating while driving!
Everyone should Giggle now and again. This laugh is on me!
