This Law Applies to Everyone

I was, um... indisposed this morning when a mighty thunder of fists was applied to my front door. This caused my birdy to squawk loudly. I quickly pulled up my pants ran to the front door, only to find a friendly neighborhood police man standing there. My first thought was "oh my gosh, what has JJ done now?" But no, thank goodness, I guess, it wasn't JJ.
Many long centuries ago, Sir Newton made note of a law, and whether we like it or not, it applies to all of us.
So what happens when this: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
is being driven too quickly through our apartment parking lot and meets this?:

According to Sir Issac Newton, this is what happens...

Ah yes, Mr. Police Officer, who disappointingly enough wasn't even hot, was there to tell me we had been in an accident while our van was parked. Sigh. Stupid kid, he hit TWO other cars with much less damage on their bumpers and then plowed into the side of my van. I think he will be okay, he was sitting up, but he did hit his head quite badly. I am just glad it seems like no one was hurt badly or killed. But it did kind of start my day out badly.
And my husband? Geez, that man just scares me sometimes. Our van was parked right out side our apartment, just across the lot. There was a four wheeler plowed into the side of it. It was hit hard enough that it pushed the back end of the van clear across the parking space. It had happened when Bald Man was walking out to his van to go to work. But! Did he notice? Nope he did not notice a large four wheeler smushed into the side of my van. He did see the bloody boy who did it, but didn't notice the van. I wonder about him sometimes.
Thank goodness for me, there is a ribbon of sweetness woven through each of my days. Behold!

Oh Jo Jo! How funny you are. I was so confused by our phone call yesterday. My 4 and half hour nap hadn't worn off yet!

Isn't it great when the big thumping music at the door isn't caused from your own teen!?

Love you - Ouch to the Van.

At least it'll be covered by their insurance. I still can't figure why this kid was smaking into cars!

Granny said...

Glad no one was in your van.

That's an adorable picture of the two of them.

Oy. Bummer on the van (dontcha love how observant the menfolk are, BTW?). Hope you can get it fixed quickly!

And the Little Man and the June Bug are precious!

It seems that the most damage occurs when it's not our fault, eh? I hope that things get fixed quickly, that there is a speedy recovery for the boy, and a harsh thrashing for his parents, etc.
:-)

And the babes... Beautiful.
