ouch.

i've always thought of my life as pretty uneventful. never had stitches, never had any serious injuries, never broken a bone, etc. the most traumatic thing thus far was hearing oprah talk about ending her show.
and then last night i was just having a normal time, like any other night. special roommate bonding time with dew, stuffed our faces with ice cream. the usual. then she's driving me home, we're cruisin' along on university pkwy, fighting over some stupid miranda cosgrove song on the radio, i look up and we're coming up to a red light! "hey... you gonna slow down?" haha. but it was too late. she pushed on the breaks but we were too close to the car and we smashed right into it.
we were both wearing our seat-belts, which is awesome because sometimes i have a bad habit of forgetting to put mine on. and i am happy to report that her airbags were in top shape and smacked the living crap out of my face.
we're still not entirely sure what happened with my hand here haha... i have a really deep cut between my index finger and middle finger. i think when i put my hand up to stop the airbag (brilliant idea) my fingers were spread and the force just ripped them apart. no idea.
so we took a little trip to the emergency room and i now have 15 stitches in my right hand! (and two hannah montana stickers)
i got pretty burnt on my arm from the airbag. katherine's whole chest and neck are burnt :(
good thing it was my right hand and school starts next week haha! i can barely even type. i guess its time for me to work on one of my life goals- becoming ambidextrous!
i'll keep you posted on how that goes.

  2. Oh Ashley! That looks like it hurts! Becareful of whiplash also....It can show up days after the accident. Do you know a good chiropractor? You might want to see one just in case. Glad you are ok! Did you take a photo of the car after the crash?
