Well, you are never gonna believe this one.
So my little sister and her boyfriend Jacob are hammering back toward the city on I-5, just north of the city a week or so ago. Leah is driving. All is well in their little world. Out of the corner of Jacob’s eye he sees this white speck come racing in, and, an instant later their car is hit by something very hard.
They think they might’ve run something over, or were hit by another car. The impact is that violent. They pull over and notice a large hole in the quarter panel behind the driver’s side front wheel. They cautiously drive back out on to the freeway and take the first exit to further inspect the hole. They don’t notice anything too specific, aside from the gaping hole in the car.
The next day Leah gets on the ringer with her insurance company. She takes the car into a body shop and the guys there are freaking out after they extract this insane hunk of metal from the car. The car suffered some $3000 in damages from the possible interstellar attack.
So then Leah called the local news to see if anyone else had reported anything odd falling from the sky, or, had been hit by anything. They quickly set up a an interview and I’ll be damned if I didn’t see my little sister on the tube talking up her peculiar incident. Pretty amazing. Leigh and I were out to eat and Leah called and said, “Turn on Fox News 12 now!” And we did, and we sat there and watched her interview with a handful of patrons.
So as these words go live on this half-ass blog, the piece of space junk is being examined by professors at Portland State University, just across the river from me. Stay tuned for their results, readers.
And fuck, I’m glad whatever hit them, hit them near the wheel. Glad everyone is okay and safe and sound, albeit shook up.
