game of inches (and seconds)

Before I’d gone more than a quarter mile on my walk this morning something interesting happened. Just as I was rounding a corner I noticed a truck out of the corner of my eye. He was coming from the opposite direction and going too fast, as rednecks here seem to always do. As he rounded the corner five or six pieces of PVC pipe slid off his trailer and into the street and yard where I’d been some 5 seconds prior. The pipe was about 20 feet long and had a diameter comparable to a basketball. I don’t know what several pieces of that shit crashing into me at 25 mph would have done. I don’t think it would have been good. Closest call I’ve had since I was running the skreets on quack.

    Almost a Stephen King van incident like incident. Least your okay. Shaken, not stirred.

    Glad you’re ok and not hurt. Too many crazy drivers out there. :-(

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.
