**Pre post statement - I really couldn't care less your thoughts on God, so please, don't post them in the comments, m'kay? **
So, last night - I came very very close to being a gigantic moron.
Or, I WAS a gigantic moron last night, and missed very bad things by the skin of my teeth.
I was driving home from dinner with friends around 9:30ish. It was pouring rain - lots of thunder, lightning, wind, etc.
I decided I wanted to call my friend. Well, my phone was being stupid, so I spent a good amount of time trying to call my friend and not watching the road.
I looked up, and all of the cars in front of me were stopped and they were CLOSE.
I slammed on the brakes, hydro-planed, tensed up my whole body for the pending collision.
That never happened.
Somehow, I was able to stop my car mere inches from the car in front of me, and the car behind me was able to swerver off to the right to avoid hitting me.
What should have been a four car mash up was a big old scary nothing.
I have zero explanation for this other than divine intervention. For real.
I am equally ashamed and grateful. I can't believe I was so very careless.
I'm never touching my cell phone again when I'm driving. Never.
My entire upper body aches today, I'm guessing it's due to the mega-tensing up bracing I did.
So, stay smarter than me, and stay uninjured.
