On Thursday night, Eric was coming to pick me up in his Volvo from graduation downtown. A kid ran a stop sign and smashed into him.
Today, we were driving the Beetle home from a thing in Maryland and the car started to lose power. We pulled over to the side of the road and Eric opened the hood. The engine was on fire. The fire department had to come and put out the blaze.
In both instances, everyone involved ended up fine. And the Volvo should be taken care of by the other guy's insurance. But our poor, poor Beetle... and we only had it for 2 weeks... it makes me sad :-(
