This is what I looked and felt like yesterday after our little mishap in the GEM, my little electric car. I think Ansley accidently hit the accelerator instead of the brake, as well as over-steered into the R turn. Coupled with the slant on our road, that recipe took us right into the ditch. The tree saved us from rolling over…thank you, Mr. Tree. Glad you are tough.
MM wasn’t home, so Logan and Haley came right on over. His assessment was that it could be driven straight ahead and on out. He moved tree limbs to keep the windshield from breaking, and away I went. Easy peasy, plenty of room.
Ansley didn’t want to get back under the wheel (probably EVER), but back on that horse she (unhappily) went, without little sister to backseat drive (annoy). I had her do a couple of loops through the property, and asked if she was ready to park it. Nope, she wanted to do ONE more! That’s my girl. She did great. Srsly.
I told Ansley that she had gotten her first accident over and done with early in the game. Smooth sailing ahead for this gal…I’m certain she is not damaged for life over this. As MM would say, it builds character!
And the GEM? It is a mixture of two previously wrecked ones, so it has had a hard two lives already and the battle scars to prove it. MM bought another wrecked one that he’ll fix up (since he has a lot of parts) and sell. At least that is the plan.
Slightly shaken, but not stirred, life is good, y’all!
