I'm sure many of you out there have had some tough times, and by that, I don't mean that it took you almost 6 months to find an Ephont Man. Maybe you did slide down an exhaust shaft, only to end up dangling on a weather vane. Or perhaps got stuck in a garbage masher. Even got sentenced to death by plunging into a pit, only to be saved by your friends in bikinis and costumes. I'm really talking about true instances where your safety, health, sanity, or life was in doubt, but you "made it through the rain" (sorry for the Barry Manilow reference, but if you could survive that without boycotting SSG forever, than now you have a story to tell, too ). Care to share?
I recently literally walked away (okay, crawled away) from a hit-from-behind-at-25+MPH-faster-than-I-was-going accident that flipped and spun my car into the embankment. Totaled my car; other guy unhurt. All I ended up with were cuts on my hands from crawling out and catching glass shards. It's been a weird week (in fact, it took place almost one week exactly to the hour and minute of this post), reliving the "action" and pondering my mortality. I know many, too many, people are nowhere near as fortunate as I was (am). Yes, I have the inconvenience of no car (the rental car is only for a little while), and the hassle of insurance companies, but that's nothing compared to what could've been.
There's also a story of me sliding down a trail in the Grand Canyon, but I'll save it.
You have anything you want to let us know about?
