Through Cam's Lens: Accidents

“My life, your entertainment

You watch it while I live it (live it)

You waitin’ for me to lose it

I guess I’m just here for your amusement”

Last week was a pretty long week. All the weeks have been pretty long weeks, honestly. So on Sunday night, I went to grab me some McDonald’s – just for a feel good night before the new week kicked off.

On my way back to the studio, “A Song for Mama” by Boyz II Men was playing, so you know it was karaoke night in the car – in the car that’s a rental; in the car that’s not mine. I get to Bush Road heading towards Philipsburg (right lane) and I’m munching on my fries. There was another car in the middle lane (filter lane) going towards Zagersgut Road – but that wasn’t my business at the moment.

I am not sure if the driver was falling asleep – maybe they were having karaoke night, too, or they were distracted for some other reason – but they started to drift into my lane close to Robbie’s Lottery. I’m like “not tonight Satan”; not in this “renty”. I tried avoiding them by pulling to the right, eventually driving onto the sidewalk, but they continued into my lane until they hit into me.

*Wack* My side mirror folds in.

*Skkkrr* Our cars start to rub.

And then “whatever the sound is when two cars bump sides.” Lol.

They realized and pulled away – not like I could’ve pulled away anymore, because I’m already on the sidewalk at this point. I stopped in the area of “Save-a-lot” to see if they would stop so that we could address the situation, but they didn’t. Classic “jigguh”. They continued to drive onto Zagersgut Road. I had no intention of paying to fix this rental – AND I LIVE MY LIFE A QUARTER MILE AT A TIME. (I really hope you got that reference.)

I dropped my fries on the seat; and in an attempt to get the license plate number, I pursued the car onto the Zagersgut Road and eventually Illidge Road. When they realized I was coming behind them, they stepped on that gas. (Ooooohhhh, this is my first high speed chase!)

I made sure my seatbelt was fastened and I took off behind them. It was late so the road was pretty empty. And as Elvis always used to say, “You need to have HEART to race me”. I was committed to this cause. This side-swiping-gluteus-jigguh will not cost me any monies.

I caught up to them around the roundabout where Eddies Auto used to be and once I got the plate number, I ended my pursuit. The spike of adrenaline had my hands shaking for a little…lol. I made a note of the time and the car’s information. I also took some pictures as evidence before heading to the studio to cool off.

I took the opportunity to go LIVE on Facebook afterward because I couldn’t deny you guys a juicy, drama-filled story from my life…lol. My life’s your entertainment. You watch it while I live it.

Anyway, lol.

I filed a police report, so hopefully that’ll be resolved – soon – hopefully – because, honestly, I don’t want to spend my hard earned money on this.

You feel me?
