Brace yourself...


Some of my friends were cracking jokes about braces on my body. First, I ended up with braces for my teeth. Now I have a neck brace courtesy of being rear-ended the other day. Roseanna, one of my co-workers, and I went to Oceanview Middle School in Agat for a textbook workshop. BORING. SO DARN BORING. Since I am not familiar with the area, I was following all the traffic laws. At a YIELD sign, I yielded and turned my head left to check for on-coming traffic. Sure enough, the light had just turned green at the base gate so lots of cars coming down the road. One big BOOM! Some idiot rear-ended me. So unapologetic. Never said sorry or asked if we were okay. He asked why I stopped when I had a whole lane. WHOLE LANE!??! It was like a few yards long and I still would have had to yield to oncoming traffic. Then he made a comment that it's why he has insurance. I have to pick up the police report next week, but the officer said the dude was in complete violation of traffic laws. I tried to blow off the pain, but it just wasn't getting any better. Went to see the doctor and came home with a neck brace and a prescription for a muscle relaxant that makes me so sleepy. I only take it at night. The brace sure is uncomfortable. Good thing it's not too hot around here or I would be one very unhappy camper. Brought my car in for regular servicing this morning and asked them to check the alignment. Just got a call a little while ago...alignment's out of whack! Plus, they gave me a list of other things that need to be done. I'll be almost $800 poorer by the end of the day. Yesterday was payday...no wonder why the money just pours out!
