My fortune cookie on Tuesday said, “In a few days, you will come out ahead.”
I don’t think this is what I had in mind when I read that.
I was very lucky. No one was hurt (my wrist is sore but nothing broken and no blood), no other cars were involved, and the kindly Oregon State Trooper did not cite me. Plenty of people stopped to help me, my sister and brother-in-law were only 15 minutes away and came to my rescue, and even American Express is going to cover the accident (at least it appears so at this point, cross your fingers).
Note to self: always use American Express for car rentals. Y’know… just in case.
I’ll post more details later but I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m safe and I did end up having a happy Thanksgiving after all.
All in all… I think, in retrospect, that I did come out ahead, after all.
