Damned Accidents, the answer

The deer jumping on top of the car gathered the most votes, your reasons were the same reasons I would most likely question, but this one is a true incident that happened to my family.

I do remember a few things about this accident, I remember the loud crash and glass being everywhere, I remember seeing the car sitting in the road with the windows broken out, and I clearly remember those shoes sitting in front of us with glass inside of them, they scared me to death to tell the truth because someone said "all that glass put his eyes out"

The main details were told to me by my Mom, she has said that I remember more about that age than I should, my sister does have tiny marks on her face that Mom explains by saying "that wreck when the deer jumped on the car marked Sissy" not sure if that is realistic or not but Mom says it's so.

Next was Cindy hitting the commissioner, this one folks is also true, I didn't make anything up about this one, it scared the hell out of me, I had just been released from the hospital for disc replacement surgery was the reason I wasn't with her when it happened, but Randy drove me to the scene in my truck, and we witnessed the aftermath.

The commissioner was an ass and kept yelling insults towards our van, he was only made to stop when I went to confront him, just imagine a guy on crutches and a neck brace going to confront anyone, but that is true also.

Cindy was injured and it really ticked me off to see her being issued tickets while the paramedics waited their turn behind the officer, I asked if this was necessary and Tim did walk up to lean on the officers shoulder and ask his silly question, while the officer scolded Tim and I the paramedics jumped in and took care of Cindy.

I think the treatment Cindy got at the scene was terrible, and was part of the reason the judge threw out her tickets.

This leaves Sissy hits the mailbox, this one was a figment of my imagination, and false of course.

Joe over at Cranky Old Man hit the nail on the head when he said " I've been in a car when a deer jumped out of a hill and grazed the roof, so not #1. #3 has too many details to be made up. #2 sounds like a sit-com. I suspect it is possible, but I vote #2 the fake."

I can't explain it any better than this, well done Joe. the only other one to guess #2 was Fran over at fishducky, finally! Joe and Fran have been added to the True Winners section for this challenge, go by and visit them if you don't already; a trip to their blogs is well worth it.

Now for an idea I have, how would one of you like to write a Truth or Fiction challenge, we could post it as a guest spot on a Monday and reveal the answer on Wednesday, and make me have to guess the answer with everyone else.

Think about it and let me know if you are interested, because I would be honored to have any of you take over Jimmys Opinion for a guest post.

  4. Honestly, I was reluctant to pick the deer story because of all of the details you recalled. Gave in to peer pressure, I guess!
