Stupid wind. Stupid tree.

So a tree branch blew off and hit my truck today. Not too happy about that. All i had was my cell phone so the only pic woth a damn is this one down there.

Damage isnt BAD, but it dented the door around the windshield frame, scratched the roof, fender, hood, left mirror, cowl panel, cab side and bed on the way down.

Took it to a shop for an estimate, but hey, comprehensive insurance comes in handy so itll get taken care of one way or another. Sure sucks to have a tree branch all and hit 7(!) body panels on the way down. I should take it home and hang that big *** branch on the wall.

To make it worse, its a Jacaranda tree. I guess it hears all the crap i talk about its stupid purple flowers that make a mess all spring.

I should take a dump under it tomorrow. Wait, itll just grow larger if i do that.

Don't let them fall on the ground. Collect them in a bucket and burn them in acid or something. Would you like it if someone cut off your nuts and submerged them in acid?
