Suburban Island

Special Delivery
Thursday, Jul. 24, 2003, 6:22 p.m.

QUESTION: What's big and white and veering over?

WHAT I LEARNED: It's not always the small things in life that count.

Yesterday as I was driving home, minding my own business, a big FedEx truck decided to change lanes and because I was there just when the driver made that decision it was a real problem.

The next thing you know I am looking at the side of this big truck smack against the side of my car and watching as it tears off my driver's side view mirror.

Another reason to send my mail through the USPS.

Am I okay - well, it was a little traumatic and when I got home my son and I dubbed it another - the day I almost got killed day So now I am limping from stepping off a curb the wrong way on Monday, looking at my kid's banged up knee from his bike accident on Tuesday, and contemplating the damage to my car from a FedEx special delivery on Wednesday.

Three's the charm.
