I got hit by a car

A year ago today I was walking listening to "GIVEN TO FLY" on my Ipod and thinking this would be an awesome song for my funeral. Now I don't know why I was thinking of my funeral as I am only 27 but I was, and all of a sudden I got hit my a car while crossing the street. I went flying and landed on my ass and bruised my tail bone really bad. I could not walk for weeks. The Paramedic that came to help me turned out to be a big Jammer, and while we were waiting in the Emergency we talked about all the Pearl Jam concerts we went to and that was the only way I could bare my pain.
So thanks a lot to the paramedics Billy and Fab and Pearl Jam for making music that gives us hope in times of pain.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, a Big a Happy Birthday to EDDIE!!!!!!

    Wow, crazy story! Glad you were and are ok though. It's cool that PJ helped you in a way I bet you weren't expecting. :)

    I am fine now, but my ass still hurts every time I get out of a chair.
    That Dane Cook piece is hilarious, because its so true. Although I did not land on my feet I did feel embarassed, hungry and my shoes did go flying
