No seriously it does. Friday was very traumatic for me. As you all know by now I am in CT visiting family and awaiting Paul’s orders. When in CT if you mention Suicide 6 everyone knows you are talking about Route six that runs from Manchester to the other side of the state towards RI.
So Thursday I tell Paul the car is getting louder we really need to go get it looked at. Even though I had it looked at before I left and they said everything was fine. LIARS! I call BS now. He calls his friend Paul French who has worked on our car before.I trust him and would allow him to work on my car at any given time. Paul has always spoken so highly of him. He says no problem bring it down and I will take a look to set something up.
So off I go Friday. I stop get gas. I was going to go highway but decide to go back roads. Not sure why the change of direction but glad I did. I then go all through Colchester, Lebanon and Willimantic. I hit Chaplin and the car is getting really loud. I am thinking oh shit I hope it makes it one more town. I am not holding my breath but I am seriously praying. I go to turn the radio up to take my mind off the car sound. I hear what sounds like gun fire. My car is shaking and then stops on a hill dead. Shit this is no the place to be stuck. It is right off a corner and they call it suicide six for a reason. Cars overly speed on this road and will run you right over. They about hit the car. I call 911 they told me when clear go somewhere safe. I do.
Finally a nice man stops to see if I am OK. I am shaking so badly I couldn’t stop.My heart raced all day. The insurance guy and car guy have the best pictures. My drive shaft went through center of car. It’s Sunday I am still pulling plastic shards out of my head. The cop and everyone who has seen the car up close can’t believe I didn’t cause and accident and I wasn’t seriously hurt. I am thankful for those who helped and my mom for renting me a car until payday. So didn’t want to have to cancel my date with four great boys!
Here are my cell pictures they don’t do justice.
All pictures taken after being towed and me finding my documents I needed. They have before I was in the car getting things out. They are much worse. Just taught me to be thankful I wasn’t hurt.
