I just nearly got hit by a car.
I’ve been in a kinda numb mood today and I’ve been pretty much travelling on autopilot all day. I really really shouldn’t leave the house when I’m on autopilot because I forgot to look out for cars when leaving a bakery and was literally one step from being hit by a car travelling at 60km/h in what I’m pretty sure was a 40km/h zone because I’ve never seen a car going above 40k down that street.
The driver saw me start to cross the street, didn’t even bother to slow down and just beeped his/her horn when I was around a foot away from the car. I heard the horn and stopped mid stride, turning to see the car fly past me. Literally one second delay in my response and I would have been squished.
At least I don’t feel numb anymore. After making it home in a state of shock I bawled my eyes out for about 15min, dry-retched a bit and now all I want to do is sleep.
