Rough Easter

We had a pretty great Easter; a trip to the gym, a trip to the print shop, an afternoon and evening full of introducing The Comic Strip Presents… to (and having a lovely veg Easter dinner with) Editrix & Summervillain.

But alas, our former neighbors in space but still-neighbors-in-our-hearts Ed, Juliet, Jacob, and Colin had a pretty rough one:

…Driving home last night on 495 we were rear-ended and pushed into the car in front of us which ended up in a 5-car accident and a trip for the 4 of us in an ambulance to UMass hospital in Worcester…

Come to find out, whiplash actually hurts. My poor, poor Altima is in very sad shape at a Wrecking Lot in Marlborough, with a bashed-in trunk holding many treasures: a soon-to-be rancid half-Easter ham, some Easter cupcakes, two Easter baskets and a bag full of Easter gifts for the boys (as well as my camera).

All that said, I’d like to thank the good folks at the Westborough Fire Department, the State Police and the pediatric unit at UMass-Worcester Medical Center. Top-notch work on what was, for them, an incident of minimal severity but for us, severe enough to make us very glad to be alive.

  1. I’m glad they’re okay!!

    Easter was indeed rough for some. Did I tell you that Glenn’s grandmother died? Kim, Glenn, and Hope were spending the holiday in Indiana, but it didn’t turn out as they’d planned.

    Given the very nice day we had, it was sort of a Thanksgiving. I’m glad we’re relatively healthy, happy, and living a good life with friends, food, and laughter.

  2. Thanks for the kind wishes. All things considered, we’re glad that we’re all OK. Jacob thought it was about the biggest adventure ever. Follow-on note: someone sideswiped Juliet at the 90/128 exit last night. Jacob now believes every return from my parents’ house includes a car accident. No one was hurt again, just some crunched metal.
