So Nina (the best and last great love of my life) and I had big plans today to kick off the holiday.
First up was a little live music with Mama Ray's Open Blues Jam at BB's Lawnside BBQ. Or, as my BFF likes to call it "old people fun".
Next was attending Vince and Linda's wedding in Excelsior Springs followed by some clubbing in KC.
The first part went very well! She had never been before and enjoyed it very much. We listened to a couple of sets, had some beer battered shrimp and a couple of drinks.
Then we headed back to my place to freshen up and get ready for the wedding.
We were south bound on Troost in her PT Cruiser at about 93rd St. when the wing just behind the passenger side rear window EXPLODED showering the interior of the car with shards of glass.
It took us both a second to fathom what had happened but it seemed pretty clear to both of us that we had been shot at.
Nina was screaming for me to pull over, but I kept driving until we were clear of the kill zone. Then we pulled over and called 911.
The KCPD arrived and a discussion ensued as to the cause of the incident. The po po favored the random kicked up road debris theory whereas we were quite adamant that a person or persons unknown fucking shot at us.
Cop: "Why do you think someone would be shooting at you?"
Me: "Umm, because we're at 93rd and Troost, it's the 4th of July weekend and people with guns like to get liquored up and do stupid shit?"
Cop: "Are you 100% certain it was a gunshot and couldn't have been anything else?"
Me: "I'm 100% certain that in 54 years I've never had an automobile window spontaneously EXPLODE showering the inside with glass shards. I'm pretty fucking sure about THAT!"
They finally gave us the police report she'll need for her insurance claim and we were done.
But she was too shook up over the incident to continue with our plans, so we just came back home to decompress.
So, sorry we couldn'take it Vince and Linda!
