There is very little that will focus a person’s attention as looking up and seeing the underside of a gas tank.
I needed to cross the street to the parking garage. Yes ! I was jay walking.
I had seen the green Jeep in front of my building. I followed a young man out of my building and I recall seeing him get into the Jeep. But I didn’t think much about it.
So, I step into the street and wait for the traffic to clear and the next thing I see is the underside of the gas tank.
I try to stand as fast as I can and there is a gathering of about 5 people around me. Several witnesses, the driver of the Jeep with the gas tank and the passenger.
I get all the witness and driver’s information. I think I am okay.
The next day I visit my doc and they review the x-ray of my back. Nothing out of place and no damage. Phew.
It wasn’t until the next day that I see my coffee mug that I was in my rolling brief case. Check out this dent where my left femur left quite a mark.
I end up with quite a bruise where the bumper of the Jeep hit my right leg and another bruise on my left leg where it hit the steel Starbucks mug.
