I got hit by a car walking home. I walked away, but I was pushed hard enough to land on the ground. At first, it seemed like just a bad scrape on my knee. 10 minutes later, my shoulder felt like it was punched. Then, my back got stiff. Now, I think my neck might be getting sore.
I couldn't interact with the driver. I would only get her plate number. But, I wouldn't interact. I couldn't. I just didn't know how. I started going off on her, but I've really never done that to a stranger before, and I'm not good at it. I told her I didn't know what to say, and just left. She was sorry. I had scared her (? f**k, I was walking in a straight bloody line as per my signals and right of way, how does someone get scared of what was already there and on its expected course). She wanted to drive me wherever I was going. I just needed to bail.
And, the last thing I wanted was Derek on my a*s when I told him what happened. Here I wanted to just relax after all that, and he was going crazy barking instructions at me, telling me not to "be a retard". I wouldn't call the cops, and I wasn't about to do what I right now am: in the hospital for at least 4 hours just to get checked out. I still haven't eaten, and I still have to work in the bloody AM.
