A devastating blow has been dealt in the war between my car and the tree beside my driveway.  After more than a year of dropping all kinds of junk on my car, leaves, bird crap, spiky sticky seed pods, the tree decided to up the ante on Sunday and dropped a great big branch onto my windshield, shattering it.  Actually, I’m not sure what my car ever did to the tree to merit this treatment.  It’s a very one-sided war.

Anyway, I had a huge rainstorm, broken, leaking, windshield, and glass all over my car, not to mention a family making jokes about my fourteen year old beat up car being totaled (the branch did $330 in damage.  It wouldn’t take much to total my car, but it would take more than that).  Dad quickly sealed off the hole with polyethylene foam so I wouldn’t get water all over my car, and I spent Monday on the phone with the insurance company trying to get my window fixed.  Turns out something else happened on Sunday, like I don’t know, maybe tornadoes tearing apart a couple of small towns in Illinois, which makes my car into small potatoes, and also overloaded the insurance company computers, so when the nice lady from the insurance looked up my name, all that popped up was my old New Mexico policy that ended more than a year ago.  So she filed the claim anyway.

And instead of someone coming to replace my windshield on Tuesday morning, I got a solemn phone call from another nice lady at the insurance telling me that I did not in fact have car insurance, and did I know that driving around without car insurance and attempting to file a fraudulent claim were illegal?

After a small freakout, I got it straightened out, filed a claim with my perfectly up to date thank you very much auto policy, and had someone come out to fix my windshield yesterday instead.

I feel disconcertingly like an adult right now.

It is a bizarre and alien feeling, that.

Boo on tree. Yay on hilarious retelling.

I keep humming the song "I don't want to grow up I'm a toys r' us kid" In this case Apple now. This week I had to put off filming the rest of my Directing II class project and wait till Wednesday, I was not a happy camper but the weather was so cold and windy and raining and dangerous over all so we decided to put it off. I don't like being responsible, I want to get my way now now now now now *stomping the ground*
