Tuesday, that would have been yesterday! The day started out fairly simple with me piddling around the house...then at 1:00 in the afternoon I met our former roommate, Tammy, at the old house. Her dog, Venus, had been sick so Scarlett was dropping her at the vet for an all day stay today to see if they can figure out what is wrong.
Next we stopped at the Jiffy Mart - me to pick up a Pepsi and Tammy to get cigarettes (yea, she still smokes!). From there I was on my way to the library and Tammy was on her way to the Post Office and then work.
As I came out of the Jiffy Mart my cell was ringing...it was Tammy. She had be hit up at the corner! I flew up there and her car was smashed up...she was still in it - a small gash on her head above her eye. The other car was up against the light post. She must have been going a pretty good speed because the driver's airbag and the passenger's airbag both went off!
After checking on Tammy, I went to check on the lady that hit her...and she said "I don't know what happened. I thought it was green, then I thought it was red...I've been having TIAs and blacking out, and I think I blacked out."
I'm thinking, "If you've been blacking out, WTF are you doing driving?"
Tammy was taken to the hospital! Both cars were hauled off. The lady that hit her went home. Four hours later and a zillion x-rays later, Tammy was released from the hospital...she is okay - just a lot of brusing. But, a few more inches and it would have hit the driver's door and Tammy would have been very seriously hurt. I drove Tammy home just thankful it wasn't any worse.
So, that was our day yesterday.
