In the middle of the party, my bestie decided she wanted to go home so we drove home and she let me drive her car back to the party. We were only about a 15-20 min walk from the party but I just wanted to get back there quickly and I was fine to drive because I hadn't been drinking.
Well, as I was making a left turn into a side street to find parking, a car came from behind me around a corner at a really fast speed and crashed into the drivers side door... it was my first car crash and I can't even tell you how awful I felt since it was my best friend's car. I didn't get hurt but the poor old car did.
As I look back on it now, I am sure it must have been pretty funny for the cops who came to the crash to see me acting so frazzled in such a silly costume. I held character, albeit unintentionally, very well. I was so jittery and freaked out in the moment, but at least now I can look back on it and kind of giggle at the fact that the situation must have seemed kind of hilarious when the other driver got out of their car and saw me in costume, looking like a deer/Trelawney in the headlights.
All that being said, I hope you have a wonderful Halloween! Be safe, and have fun. And rather than driving to and from your destination tonight, try taking a cab or a bus just to be safe. The streets are spooky scary on Halloween!
