My Son Went Crash Bang Yesterday Morning
This was my day yesterday: At 8:30 a.m., I got a call. My son, 20, had wrecked my daughter's Chevy Cobalt. He was lost, and had made a bad turn, committing a failure to yield. An SUV hit the car on the passenger's side. Thank God he was alone in it.
The Cobalt then careened into a traffic light pole on Marconi and Harrison by City Park. The Other driver, one of the city's District Attorneys, was not injured. He was on his way to work at Tulane and Broad.
Again, thank, God. After the police left and the car was towed away, my daughter and I took my son to an emergency room to have him checked out. He had to have some glass bits removed from his hand, and also suffered a few bruises, but otherwise he's fine.
Next week it's back to grad school for me, and he and his sister go back to undergrad classes. Somewhere in middle of it I'll fit in a visit with my dad's physical therapist.
If this is the opening to the new semester, I'd better eat my Wheaties.
