Minor Setback

To our utter surprise, a driver in a lovely little Honda Element rear-ended us on I-495 this evening. The tailgate and back bumper are pretty seriously misconstrued, and all of us are finding aches and pains. It seems likely that we will be rather sore tomorrow. The string bass has some damage, as it was close enough to the door to experience the initial impact.

The biggest frustration is that this happened as we were on our way to the one and only rehearsal for this Sabbath's performance of Dubois' Seven Last Words of Christ. The primary orchestra coordinator was injured this weekend, so I was filling in, or thought I was. It turned out that we arrived more than half-an-hour late, and completely missed rehearsing the first two sections.

The other driver appears to be appropriately insured, so we anticipate getting all these things taken care of sooner or later. But how does it help us (or anyone else) to add this particular hassle-factor to our overly busy and stressed lives at precisely this time? I look forward to finding out.
