I drove a road yesterday. A road that, several years ago, ate my Jeep. Although it was dry and the ‘Suzi is capable I was still somewhat nervous, but I had time and so I drove it.
How ironic it was to encounter trouble on that road. Again! This time though it wasn’t the road but the road user (abuser?).
Bongani and his wreck, driving on the smooth part of the road which happened to be the wrong side, doing about 20kph. I hoot, I pass on the left and what does he do? You guessed it. He swings back just as I’m next to him. Hooter blaring in angry protest, he finally wakes up and gives me space, grinning like an idiot and waving, trying to diffuse any angry thoughts from my side.
The close call, on that particular road, again, just highlights the irony of life. Too much of a coincidence to be coincidence!
