there was another bicycle-car accident at the bus stop today. second time in like a week, i think. a hubcap was hurt. cellphones were invoked.
this girl asked me questions in not-so-good english.
"What happened?!"
"i think that girl crashed into that car.. yeah"
"Was anyone hurt?!"
"no, no i don't think so.. except for that hubcap, *hehe*"
"um, that.. uh, nothing"
"Someone was hurt?"
"no.. no, i don't think so."
and then her bus arrived and she smiled and waved good bye.

an accident can really liven up a place, i realized today. it fills the moment with some kind of suspense, and i think alot of people like that..
