Lucky Lady

2013 Dodge Avenger at 60mph VS stopped white Utility Van
I'm feeling so very lucky.
Yesterday for 0.1 second, I thought I was about to die.  The airbags filled with hot gasoline and as the firey sensation rushed over my body, I thought my car had caught on fire and I was buring alive.
And then a calm came over me and I realized I was alive.
I sat there in shock long enough that when I realized I should get out of my car because I was smelling strange fumes, the police officer had already had time to arrive on the scene.
As I stepped out of the car the officer asked "Are you okay babydoll?"
I have never liked being southern until that moment.
Very attractive young cop calling me babydoll.  I must have actually died and gone to heaven.
Anyway, jokes aside, I'm okay.  And I feel very lucky.
It is the scariest thing that has ever happened to me.
Today I definitely FEEL like I hit a stopped utility van going 60 mph.
Yesterday I was sore, but nothing compared to today.
But I am alive to feel this pain, so I'm okay with it.


  1. Girlie, I am so praying for your pain .. AND SO HAPPY YOU ARE OK :)

  2. Oh my god! How are you just sore coming out of that and not severely injured?? Lucky girl. Sending my good vibes your way, and praying to the insurance gods for you (they listen to me, I work for an insurance agency ;]).

    1. Thanks for insurance god prayers! Got the notification this morning that it's a total loss! Thank GOODNESSSSSSSS! And thank the heavens above for gap insurance!

  3. Oh my gosh? Is that YOUR car? You are LUCKY to be alive, and even luckier to not be seriously injured. What happened??? Hugs to you!

  4. Hollee...I know I saw this photos on Instagram already, but I just CANNOT get over how bad this is! And LUCKY you are not to be seriously injured. SO glad you are okay, Babydoll! Had to laugh at that. :) " car just got totally effed up, and I'm smelling gas fumes....oh look! Hot cop!!" This is why I adore you. :)

  5. First, so happy you're OK.
    Second, you totally should have gotten that cops phone number! Gotta' love a man in uniform.

  6. WOW! Unbelievable! I absolutely HATE car accidents, it took me a long ass time to get over mine and I still cringe a lot whilst gets better though! Glad you are ok, thank the stars for that! And oh yes....GAP is the bestest!
