This is old news, but thought of blogging about it anyway.
So I have been in an accident, a motor accident. It was exhilarating but hopelessly stressful at the same time because the car was gone when I needed it the most.
One fine Saturday, I was on my way home from uni. A couple of kilometers toward Piliyandala from uni & a wild thought engulfs me...."Hey, why don't I overtake this rickety looking bus...", and behold like an idiot I did just that.
The bus driver had stopped & just pulled off just as I was passing him and WHAM!!!!!!!!! He slams the right side of the bus into my car's doors.
After getting through the first 2 second shock, the rest of the episode unfolded quite well. No shouting, no yelling & having admitted that the fault was mine I was happily on my way after 10 minutes of delay :-D
Having had two doors replaced, painted & completely renovated the car is back in business now. What is weird is that the whole university staff seem to be knowing that I was in an accident. A fortnight ago one person(UoM staff member) who I have never seen before stops me in a corridor and asks how I am holding up after the accident. I have to admit I was a little embarassed my negligence has caused too many people to notice my existance :-D While I was talking to him he drags another person in, saying "See, this is the one I told you about...The one who was in an accident!!!"
So, there I was caught off guard, not knowing what to say to them & standing there grinning like a pig!
