Ben & Tess's Big
We've been living in Simei for almost one week now. On Saturday night when I was sleeping, Mommy and Daddy sneaked out without me! This is what happened...
Mommy and Daddy were driving to meet Auntie Robin and Auntie Lian for
coffee at 10pm. A truck heading in the opposite direction veered into their path: he was
on the wrong side of the road coming right for them!
Daddy had to
swerve into the other lane - against the flow of traffic. But it still wasn't enough to
avoid the allegedly drunken bastard. That's what my mommy called him - I think it means
bad driver. After hitting Daddy's car, he crashed into the ditch and then spent the next 5
minutes trying to restart the engine until the neighbours told him he's crashed and better
Daddy's car got
side-swiped. As it did, the side view mirror got knocked off and it crashed through the
passenger window into Mommy's head. The doctor at the hospital said, "Good thing you
have a hard head." So she ended up with just a few cuts and bruises. But because she
went to the hospital, Auntie Robin couldn't take pictures of her.
As it turned
out, there just happened to be two mechanics who were driving by and were able to help
out. Plus the people living by the crash site were doctors! So the mechanics had a fight
about who would get the business.
