She's out to get me...

Remember a couple of years ago when I had a run in with Mrs. D and she smooshed my sweet car? Well, yesterday I was on my way to school - around 7:35am. Yes, I know that's early.
I passed her house and noticed that her car was gone.
"OMG! She's out and about! How unusual... She must have gone to breakfast.", I thought.
We cross over a teeny tiny one lane bridge (20mph) to get in and out of our neighborhood. Now let me say that this bridge is really one lane... If there happens to be a person or a cow on the bridge, you cannot cross.
I was behind another car.
I saw a car coming up on the other side. I thought it might be Mrs. D as color of the car was right. It was.
The car in front of me crossed the bridge, but barely made it over as Mrs. D decided she was coming across. She was waiting for no one. She didn't even pause... she just went. The car in front of me actually had to swerve as it came off the bridge or he would have been crumpled.
I had stopped just short of the bridge to watch and see what was going to happen. Needless to say, I had back up or she would have run me over.
I figured the quicker she got that car back into her garage, the better. The world is a much safer place with her car parked at home....

Thanks for the heads up. And the neighbors thank you for helping her to get that car back in the garage quickly as possible!
We are all hopefully safe for another day.

ARGH! Why does this woman still have a car???

I'm glad you made it out safely.
