I had quite the traumatic experience last nite.. on my way back from a delicious fun night at Harvard Sq with an old friend…..
But before I get into that…. back to my story. I got in a hit & run just like 10-15 minutes away from my house. Witnesses behind me said they saw a hit and run… I just heard a boom, freaked out, swerved, hit the curb and mailbox. Entire right side TOTALED.. windshield shattered… front right part of car GONE… front right tire FLEW off, back right tire flattened… and it just looks horrible.
The tire that flew off
Bye bye my baby…
No worries I passed all the sobriety tests [def wasn’t drunk] just had to deal with insurance and police reports, ugh. A bit sore and possibly bruised from the seatbelt… neck is sore… but other than mental distress I think I’m OKAY right now.. just want to keep on sleeping.. woke up super late today to file insurance report and then made some scrambled eggs and had it with a whole avocado with chulula hot sauce.
Bye bye my baby red Matrix XS. I did love you so.
Altho I am annoyed and kinda glad my airbags DIDN’T GO OFF. And to the guys who came and helped me and was my witness.. thanks thanks so much for being amazing and sweet.
So I guess onto the good parts…
Old friend showed up late….. so I had was at Chameleon myself.
I got a touch up on my ankle… and a new addition to my collection.. actually dedicated to my mother. There’s a little story behind it… my mom, when I was little, used to ask me all the time “How much d you love me?” and I’d open my arms as wide as I could and say.. “for infinity…” :]
Anyways finally met up with my friend for a few drinks before dinner…. got him the most awesome book “How to tell if your car is plotting to kill you”… [he has two cats] thanks to Oatmeal. A few Garden Saison beers at John Harvard’s Brewery
And then a delicious dinner at Upstairs on the Square
Dinner time… with bubbles..
He got the grilled salmon on top of pearl onions and saurkraut and broccoli….
My roast duck with blood orange and other yummy flavors…. so fatty meaty and delicious. JUICY TO THE CORE!!!
Dessert was a Napoleon… with the most amazing chocolate chip vanilla bean ice cream. The Napoleon definitely wasn’t what I expected, more cake than flakey. No flake at all.
And then a champagned induced addition….
