Focus? What’s that? February 12, 2015Posted by Elizabeth Schechter in Best planned lays, drama, this-is-why-we-can't-have-nice-things, why-the-writing-is-slow.
So, today, my husband and I were on our way to lunch. We’re sitting at a red light, waiting for the light to change.
We were rear-ended by the car behind us, and the woman who looked old enough to be God’s grandmother. She let her foot off the brake and rolled into us.
Cops were called. Information was exchanged. Tickets were issued — to God’s Granny, who was solely at fault. Insurance was called. For a fender bender, it’s a relatively innocuous one — the damage to my car is minor enough that it doesn’t even meet my deductible! God’s Granny has already been in contact with the body shop to pay for the repairs, which will happen next week.
But focus? There’s none of that in this house tonight!!!
