My apologies for the late post, but I had a rather busy day. My car had the misfortune to be crunched by a hit and run driver while it was sitting in my driveway. The next door neighbor watched the whole thing unfold from her front porch, which makes the fact that the driver sped off even more bizarre.
On the bright side, this has turned out to be just about the most perfect accident imaginable, at least from a liability standpoint. The damage is small, the car was parked, and the police caught the other driver within ten minutes. For some reason I found it inordinately cool when the cops completed all the paperwork on a networked laptop and were able to print out a copy, complete with pictures, right from the front seat of their cruiser.
