Got a bit of my mojo back

After 31 years of driving, I had caused an accident. I have gotten hit by other cars before but I had never hit anybody. Not saying I have not scraped a car or two in some tight corners of Boston underground parking here and there… but never hit another car on the road.

Well, the confidence was a bit damaged. Not as much as the front of Sharmila’s car. But impaired none the less.

Gotta say – got some of my confidence back after driving in New York downtown in peak office hours. In the darkest of evenings with constant rains. The visibility, to me, felt like that of the chap out on the lookout tower of the Titanic on that fateful night. Brooklyn was a bear to drive in, by any stretch of imagination!

Got honked only once! Still, I drove like a man possessed. It was going to be…. errr… New York or bust for my driving skills!!

Dropped Natasha and Tuey at their residence (am going to miss those two) and then checked into a hotel.

Finally, got myself an Old Fashioned to calm my nerves down!!!
