collisions

Coming home today, on the way to the airport, we were unfortunate enough to be in a car accident. I’ve never been in a wreck before, save when Annie rear ended someone at a stoplight but that was quite minor. There is a very distinct experience to it, though - I was immediately reminded of being in the car with Annie after it happened. There’s something about the sound, and how it’s such a jarring collision. Somehow I think I always expect it to be more of a crunch than a bang, and not be so fast. It reminds me of clenching my teeth too quickly. I can feel the whole thing in my jaw. The way the sound resonates. I can’t get over that sound.
