Dear Drunk Drivers:

Most of the time, my blogs are funny and completely insane, because what is on my mind comes out on a computer screen and it's a jumble of words that sometimes doesn't make sense.  I'm ok with that.   This time though, it's a warning and a rant.

Last Thursday night, I seriously almost got really hurt.  Or maybe died (only because I wasn't wearing my seatbelt and it could have been REALLY bad).  I was going down a two lane highway and a drunk driver got into my lane, probably going about 50 miles an hour and made me swerve off the road into some construction barrel that my car destroyed.   Since it was raining, I ended up spinning and pointing north on a street that runs east/west.  Probably the scariest moment of my life because I thought "Holy shit... this is going to be a head on collision and it's going to be bad... and I'm not wearing my seatbelt"  Thankfully, I was able to swerve and miss the asshole that could have killed me. 

So this is my open letter to those drivers that keep getting behind the wheel after having one too many:  STOP.   If you are my friend and keep doing it, I will stab you.  Seriously.  You are going to hurt someone or yourself and the world would be a darker place because of the light that you will have snuffed out prematurely.  


  1. Glad this was only a near miss, but yeah, very scary. I had one, too, last year with a distracted driver who ran a red light. I missed becoming part of his grill by mere inches. I swear, the older I get, the more afraid I am to get in my car and venture out with the idiots. I'm always worried it's gonna be "my time."

  2. Kathy, I'm happy that the red light runner missed you. My car was totalled about 6 years back because of the very same thing. The girl was putting on makeup, on the phone, and I wasn't even the first car across the intersection. I got very very lucky (according to the hot paramedics on scene before I passed out). They may not have been hot. I might have had a worse concussion that I thought. ha!
