So I decided to have a relaxing Friday morning. I went for breakfast with my dad, then afterwards went for a walk downtown. I went to the library to pick up some books, relaxed and had a tea on a patio, then went for a haircut. Yep, just a nice relaxing day…
…up until my near-death experience.
After the haircut I was heading home, and was waiting at the light when my friend texted me. It was a message that said “Holy fuck! A snake??? Is everyone okay?” It was obviously a message intended for someone else, but as the light turned green I started to walk, holding my phone up to the left as I read the message. If I wasn’t doing that I would’ve been fucked – because some crazy ass driver decided to run a red light and came flying across the road straight at me. He must’ve been doing at least 50kmh. If I was looking straight on, I would’ve been FUCKED as I wouldn’t have seen him and he would’ve just mowed me right fucking down. It was a big soccer mom van too. Thankfully as I was looking at my phone I saw him, and managed to dive out of the way for the most part. I still got dinged on my left foot which is sore as fuck. Of course, asshole didn’t even stop, he just kept fucking driving.
Christ. Well, time to have a good stiff drink!
