Flying Rocks

I had an extremely scary car event yesterday.  I was fortunately alone, except if the kids had been along I might know what hit me.  I was driving out to the airport to pick up my friend Jane and was on 695.  I was coming up to where 695 intersects 95 when something loud hit the right side of my car.  It was a giant bang and in the rear-view mirror I saw something black rolling away.  I thought maybe it was a bird, but when I checked at the airport I have a big dent and scrapes.  Whatever flew into me took a chunk out of the car.  I think a rock either flew out of a truck or off the overpass.  I was lucky it hit low and didn't break a window.   My poor car is so banged up!

Whatever hit was black and heavy and so actually I think it was meteorite.  I should read the paper today to see if any strange atmospheric disturbances happened yesterday.  It is also a good thing that I put off buying a Ferrari until next week.

  1. It probably was a meteorite. Did you develop any special powers today? Can you shoot webs or fly or move things with your mind?
