An old guy, eschewing Tarmacs and public markets, decides to jump past a stop sign, into another car, and they both jump over to my side of the road to say hi. Fortunately nobody was injured, though spiritually I was devastated as I watched my car turn from a vibrant roadster into a mangled cadaver. Not all was a total loss though - the air bags had the good sense to stay hidden and out of danger :)
So now I'm driving a rented Prius (might as well check them out), and waiting for my car to be officially declared dead. le sigh.
