Today I was working in the garage on a new project for the M3 and I was cutting some heated steel with a air dy grinder and unfortunaly got some steel in my eye. I had on some glasses but that only helped a little. I just went on working and didnt think much of it. But a few hours later my eye is swollen shut and hurts like hell when it tears. So I get in the car and drive my self to the local hosipital to get it looked at. Well, they had to use a needle to pull the shareds out of my eye. I now have to wear a eye patch for 3 days and take all kinds of weird meds. The cool part was when the male nurse asked if I had some to drive me home, I said no I drove my self. So I called some family to come get me.
He proceeded to tell me that I cant drive for 3 days, I laughed so loud(morphine will do that to ya) and said sure, I said its like Im addicted to it, I didnt say what kind of car it was. 5 min later the doc came in to give me some withdrawl orders for my eye and he said, so you have an addiction to your car, I said yup, its just so enjoyable, i said. He said, he had a car that was like that, he said he felt odd when he was not in it, he said he loved to hear it rev so much he was always speeding in it, he went on to say that when he graduated from med school his dad bought him a M6.. I laughed and said well thats funny I have an m3.. he was laugheing also and said he traded it in on a e34 m5, which I saw in the parking lot when I was on my way in..
It was funny to hear the doc tell me about how much it liked his car... I told him that I couldent not drive the car, he said well I warned ya... I got his card and hope to invite him to our next gathering.. maybe he wont bill me for my 2 hour operation?? doubt it!
Either way just thought id share, and if ya didnt notice im on some morphine so if my spelling is off, ya know why..
