Today it is snowing. Of course. Because that's really all we need here in Massachusetts--more snow. On today of all days.
This morning my cell phone rang at 8:11 a.m. The ring tone was Kellie's. Kellie never calls me before noon. I mean, never. Especially never when I'm not expecting her to call.
I picked up the phone, heart pounding. "I just wanted you to know, I just got in an accident also," she said.
"Oh my God! Are you all right?" I shrieked.
"Yeah, I'm fine."
"What about your car?"
"It has a huge freakin' scratch in the front now. I'm pissed."
"Oh, man, you gave me a freakin' heart attack!"
"Sorry, didn't mean to scare you. I just thought you'd find it humorous."
"Well, yeah. Apparently it's open season on Toyotas."
Have I mentioned I'm picking up my car from the dealership today?
