I had a bit of an... incident last Friday night, on my way home from work. It's a bit of a long drive, and it's easy to drift off and lose focus - especially that late at night. All of a sudden, this cat runs out in front of me. I swerve to avoid it, and I spun out.

I don't remember much about the ten or fifteen seconds or so after that, except that I was pee-my-pants terrified (I would like to note, however, that I emerged from the incident both dry and clean), and that I stopped on the edge of a pretty good-sized ditch. If my reactions had been a few split-seconds slower, if the road had been a little more wet, if my tires had been a little more worn down... I would have run right into that ditch, which probably would have flipped the car, which probably would have done some major damage. The immediate conclusion? I coulda freakin' died.

So it's been a few days since then, and I've had some chances to pull some lessons from the experience.

First: Next time, hit the damn cat

Second: Life is short - ride the wheels off this mofo

Third (related to "Second", above): Generally be a more happy, expressive person - I'm working on it.

So, I'm just gonna say it: You're all awesome, each and every one of you. Even Rocky, if only because he occassionally emails me stuff he doesn't need. Very Happy

We love you too POW. I'm sorry to hear about your almost dying. All of you, in my eyes, are friends and I do not like to see bad things happen to any of my friends. As you have said life is short, live every day of it as if it were your last. With that said, make your last day count.
