    She's just lucky you weren't a motorcycle or a car.

    She'd be dead. Was she texting or yapping on the phone? A lot of those behind wheels these days, let alone on two legs.

    My doctor told me to get off the drops. Have a pinched nerve. Went to a flatbar and all is well. Tempted to try drops again, so we'll see.
