1383. Accident

Yeah, well, all I wanted was a packet of cigarettes. So I had to drive into town, which is about ten minutes away, and when I got there they closed off the main street and everyone had to detour around. There was this old lady run over and killed.

She shouldn’t have been crossing there anyway. There’re places to cross, but she had to cross in the wrong place and got hit by a car and killed. Serves her right, I say. She won’t be doing that again!

The shop I always get my cigarettes from is slightly cheaper than other shops so I always go there. But it’s in the main street. And because of the old lady getting killed I was stuck in the blocked off main street for about three hours, and none of the shops there had opened because they’d blocked off people going in and out. And after all that, I came home and had forgotten to get cigarettes.

That old woman must’ve been half blind. It’s not my fault I ran her over.

      It was if I was drawn to her like a magnet. There are still bits of her on the front bumper of the car, I think. I’ve been meaning to take it to the kid’s car wash on Saturday to get it scrapped and cleaned.

    There is the fault in the space time continuum. The main road gets blocked after this psycho-nicotic-cynic kills the old woman and he should have been able to pick up the cigarettes in the interregnum, unless of course he is snuffing out destitute lives at an hourly rate.

      He did have the courtesy to stop and have a geek/gawk at the body. That probably was enough for the police to arrive. Besides – if she was carrying a handbag he may well have wanted to go through her things – to establish her identity…
