Sometimes you've just gotta laugh.

That's right, Mr Universe ... I said "laugh"!

So I'm driving my rental car into work this morning, when I hear "WHACK". With a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, I scan the windshield and find this:

Huge rock chip in windshield

So I just started laughing. Because really, what are you going to do?

(Well, I know what I SHOULD do. And that's invest in a really good helmet, I'm thinkin'. And maybe some knee and elbows pads! And y'all might want to keep at least a 100 feet away from me for awhile. Ya know, for your own protection. Because it looks like I may be in for one wild ride! :))

But you know... that may not be a rock chip.

It looks like the end of a hookah could have caused that damage. Perhaps Crazy Seller Man found his beloved hookah in the trash and tracked you down and lobbed said hookah at your passing car this morning.

I mean, stranger things have happened, right? =)


PS I'm sorry. But don't let the universe get you down! Think of legless Lt. Dan screaming at God on the shrimp boat in Forest Gump. Soon, you'll see the beautiful God-light break through the clouds and you'll only appreciate it as much because you were tested in this particular way...

In other words (those of Bobby Darrin actually)...Don't worry, be happy!

And, uh, don't be surprised if *I'm* wearing a helment next time I hang out with you. =)

Duuuuude! What is this?!

I think it may be time for full-body padding. :)


At least you're still able to laugh. It's good that you're not a postal worker, I suppose. ;)

You need to take it to a glass shop as soon as you can. Probably not much will happen right now, but especially in the winter with the temperature changes, that chip will turn into a crack that will slide all the way across your windshield. Trust me, I know from experience. It totally sucks, too.

Oh, yeah. Ok, so I just realized that was a rental. Totally disregard what I said about getting it fixed. Somebody else can handle it. You poor thing! It just seems like SO MUCH is going on all at once with you!
