To the person who drove into my parked car on Friday night:

Thanks for not bothering to stop or leave a note saying sorry. I just hate awkward conversations anyways.

Thanks for the (approaching 1k) repair bill I got stuck with for parking in front of my own house on one of the widest residential streets in the city.

Thanks for hitting and incapacitating the vehicle that we use most often for quick trips around town and fuel efficiency.

Thanks for giving me the excuse to finally buy a new side mirror, rim, tire, arm and knuckle for my drivers side front wheel. They were getting worn out and unstylish, weren’t they? And I do have all this money I just don’t know what to do with…

Thanks for the long scrape along the drivers side door. I think it makes me look tough too! And I think I will just leave it instead of paying another $500 to have it repainted.

And thank you for not hitting my boy, one of my neighbors or one of my animals. No doubt you were tanked, and had the opportunity presented itself you might have found it hard to pass up.

I still think you’re an asshole, but if this is the worst thing to happen to me this year- I will count myself lucky, take it and say thank you.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its
    niche. Fantastic blog!
