Almost hit by a car last night
Last night I was at my parents house dropping off our new crib (my wife doesn't want it in our house until the baby's born, says it's bad luck). So, like an idiot, I'm standing street side pulling it out of the back of my truck. It was dark out, but I was under a street lamp, when a car comes hauling down the street. He starts drifting over, so I pin myself against the truck to get as close as possible when I realize that this guy is not looking where he's going and he's going to smash into me. I screamed out something like "HEY" or "Watch out!" or something and he swerves left slightly, just enough to not kill me, but catch my shirt with his mirror! I was pretty freaked out, all shaky, and out of breath. Just thought I'd vent, and let people know to ALWAYS load/unload curbside.
