An ironic morning...

My commute to work on foot this morning was interrupted by a lady making a right-on-red turn in a large SUV. After hitting me with the hood on her passenger side, she managed to run over both my feet, and then knock me to the ground with her wing mirror. Why was this ironic? Because my first appointment of the day was with my friend Sarah, our Notary Public, who had kindly agreed to notarize my will this morning. Not a moment too soon, it appears. Now my left foot is very sore, along with my grazed right hip - hopefully nothing broken, so close to the start.

I guess this was a Run-and-Hit accident haha...

But seriously, it wasn't a hit and run was it?
