Let's talk about me, baby...
So I was in a quasi-accident over the weekend. Fortunately, I was the only person involved. Snow, sleet and a slippery interstate are not a good combination. Even when traveling at forty-five miles an hour...
So convinced now of my own mortality (and after realizing that my spinning car could have hit another car, the freeway divider or a big truck but instead ended up in a snow-covered ditch) and that my number may not be up yet, here's one of those assembly line quasi-confessionals that usually land me in trouble. But I'll publish it only here. Because in Cyberspace no one can hear you laugh. Or cry. Or sigh. Unless you have a webcam. So on with the survey:
