This is really the kind of stuff that happens to me.

I got hit by a car last week.

Well, okay, not technically hit by a car. More like the car and I made contact.

Okay, FINE. I hit a car. By walking into it. (This car was in motion at the time. Did I mention that?)

I was waiting for a car to pass before I crossed the street and, just as he passed me, he inexplicably slowed down (maybe it was for a duck that had wandered into the road, maybe not. Maybe we'll never know). And, what do you know, I stepped off the curb just as he slowed down and walked right into the back of his car.

The driver, bless his little heart, jumped out yelling, "Oh my gosh! Are you okay? What happened? Oh my gosh!"

"Uh, well," I mumbled, "I think I might've run into your car."

He stopped short, eyebrows sky-high. "You . . . ran into . . . . my car?"

"Looks that way."

Because, apparently, I am that awesome.

Yeah, I think that was definitely the duck's fault. But ducks are so cute and nice (unless like, say, geese), I guess we'll just have to forgive her. Way to take one for the (duck) team!

P.S. My son was thrilled watching the Tigger clip on your last post.

Do you have Aflac? Perhaps that duck is trying to teach you a lesson about the need for disability insurance.

I'm leaving a comment to validate this funny post, but I'm not sure exactly what to say.

Look both ways next time?

Ask your brother Nathan about walking into cars that are quietly parked on the side of the road, minding their own business...
