The Odds Were Against Me
In the 86 miles (round trip) I drive to work each day, I see a lot of things. One thing I see way to much of is car accidents. In the estimated 25,000 miles I have driven in the last year or so (to and from work), I have been lucky to stay out of them. However, today my 1 in 25,000 odds were against me. It was my turn on a dark, rainy morning in McKinney, Texas. That's right, this morning on my regular commute to work, I locked up my breaks (after the cars in front of me slammed on theirs) and slid on the wet road into a Nissan Pathfinder. Good news...No one was hurt. I was in the car by myself and the lady in front of me was by herself. We were both able to drive our cars off of the freeway and into a parking lot where we were safe. My car took the brunt of the impact and is currently at a collision center. I'm hoping that it can be repaired and we will be reunited once again - my good friend. At the end of the day, it is just a car and the important thing is that everyone is safe (well that and I carry maximum coverage). So tomorrow drive safely, you never know when an orange construction barrel will jump out onto 1 lane of a 2 lane road. This could lead to an accident. So, be on the look out and be careful.
My name is James Burgess. I have a beautiful wife of a little over 8 years named Lisa and a baby on the way. We are both busy with work and school but find as much time as we can to be involved in church and hang out with our great friends. I hope the things you read here will inspire, educate, or just entertain!!
