You Did What?

And here is how it MIGHT have gone...

911-"911 what is your emergency?"

caller - I need help

911- help with what?

caller - we just had an accident

911 - is everyone alright?

caller - the car is damaged, the family is ok.... however, the elephant may need some help

REALLY NOW.... or it may have gone like this....

Random guy - I need to file a claim on my insurance

Insurance agent - ok, what is your claim?

Random guy - I had an auto accident

Insurance agent - With another auto or single car accident?

Random guy - Single car accident.... with an elephant

Insurance agent - I hear that all the time... what really happened?

OK all kidding aside.

Can you imagine, driving home from church and WHAM car hits elephant in the road. Seriously, an elephant. What a story! I don't believe anyone was seriously injured and the elephant is basically ok. I know it is serious, but I crack up every time I think of it. I can't stop laughing! I feel for the family AND the elephant. To read the actual news article you can click HERE.



PS - I want to say thank you to all my crazy readers... I am excited to have hit a milestone today. Well, it's a milestone to me at least and it makes me feel special... I hit 20 followers today. YEAH! I know that is not a lot to some, but to me it is... Thanks to everyone for reading my totally random "JUNK" about my crazy life/family...

PS again - When I hit 25 followers I may do something crazy like a giveaway.... WOOT WOOT so keep watching, I am sure it will happen eventually :)

PS one last time - YES an actual ELEPHANT!

Well, my husband hit a deer or he would say the deer hit him... But it did a number on our Expedition! I would hate to see what an elephant would do lol...

Love it! When I lived in FL as a girl, I can remember people hitting gators as they crossed the road. Gators, I can understand . . . but how can you not avoid an elephant?????

Brandy said...

yay for 20!!! I remember when I hit 20 - total awesomeness.

and you crack me up.

I agree with you. Everytime I think about the elephant story I start laughing out loud! The weird thing is that we just realized we went by right after it happened and before the police got there. If we hadn't stopped on our way out of the grocery store to talk to some friends, it could have been us. Oh, and congrats on reaching 20. I don't know if I count as an actual "follower" or not, but I check every day to see if you have written a new blog to brighten my day and make me smile!

Laura said...

WHAT??? Why haven't I heard about this? I will have to go back and read the article but I am so confused about this! :) Congrats on the followers, and I must say i LOVE your random crazy stuff! :)

I hadn't heard about that but occasionally on the Nashville traffic reports you'll hear about a dead cow blocking the roadway. I'm guessing trucks transport them overnight and sometimes one falls off? I have no idea... It's only happened twice in the 15 years I've worked downtown but twice is enough!

Nikki said...

An elephant huh? Round these parts the biggest thing we hit is a deer. Most of the time possum, squirrel, or armadillo. Poor family!

Sheila said...

Amy Croley said...

Poor elephant. Bet he didn't expect to be hit so hard. This is so random. I'm still chuckling.
