This scenario freaks me out at least once a week...



(Click image.)

UPDATE 12/20/08 - My niece Katie was the victim of this same scenario a couple of days ago (after I did this post). In the diagram, she would be the yellow car. She's fine. Just a little sore. People, I know you're being nice when you try to let people DRIVE ACROSS TWO LANES OF TRAFFIC...BLINDLY...but you're not doing anybody any favors. Please, don't do it.

Wow--what a graphic!

So, did someone get hit?

And can you believe I am a little nervous about driving in Texas in less than two weeks?! Wait. You drew this graphic. Maybe you can believe it!

BTW, the word verifier for this post is "conan". Hmmm.

Lest anyone doubt, this proves that Laurie really can see everything. She probably knows all, too.

The moral of the story is: Don't be nice in traffic. I'm sorry to say it, but it just ain't safe. At best, somebody gets to the next red light two seconds earlier. At worst, a horrible crash involving low-level nuclear waste causes Laurie's eyebrows to fall out. She doesn't need that along with the whole lip cream/eye cream mix up.

The really weird thing is that I understood what the hell you were talking about - that just NEVER happens!

Laurie said...

Susan - I hate it!

Just - I've never actually seen anyone get hit...yet.

Larry - You're onto me.

Steve - True on all counts.

Grimm - I'm just that good.

I have now become a victim of this very scenario. NO BEUNO!!!!

Laurie said...

Katie - No! Are you okay?!

I've watched that same scenario turn into a hairy accident. Hope all is well with you (and Kate. Sheesh!)!

Laurie said...

La Sirena - Hi!!! Long time no see. I'm off to check on your blog.
