A truck sideswiped our car on the freeway a couple of hours ago. We managed to get out of that with a destroyed passenger side mirror, a little shaken up, and little other damage.

A lucky escape when everything around us was whizzing by at about 100 kmph, and I’d slowed down just a bit when I noticed the drifting truck. To paraphrase Dana Meadows, whose writing is top of mind at the moment, slowing down is a good option.

The truck drove on, oblivious to the pickle he put us in (and possibly other motorists).
