And nobody cares.
Telling someone that you ALMOST had a car accident is worse than telling someone about a dream you had.
Almost had a car accident stories are the all time worst stories. Why? BECAUSE NOTHING HAPPENS. You DIDN'T HAVE A CAR ACCIDENT!!! And neither did most people that day.
Don't tell me about it. Nothing happened. And I certainly don't want to hear a story with the punchline of nothing happening. So go crack up your car and tell me about it....I'll be all severed ears. But if you avoid said accident maybe you can go write it in your diary. Though even Dear Diary doesn't care.
(I once dreamed about almost having a car accident....I almost crashed into a vat of pudding after said vat sprouted wings. Or something. Thank god I swerved, huh?)
