Re: Automobile accident

Let me see if I understand this correctly.  Your story is that I left 
work, in Marina Del Rey (that's where Fetch Technologies was), to meet 
you for lunch; we went for lunch in Santa Monica (that's where Ocean 
Avenue is); while at the restaurant, around lunch time, you went across 
the street and THAT'S when the bleeding occurred; then, from Santa 
Monica, we drove all the way to the UCLA Medical Center in Torrance (22 
miles away) and didn't arrive there until about 7:20pm?

There seem to be some logistical flaws in your story.

Now, who's memory is messed up?

>>         4. The police and insurance reports of the accident clearly

>>         5. After the accident, you walked away from it - literally! 
>>         You walked to a payphone and called me at work to inform me

>>         6. Following the accident, you continued to attend your

>>         abnormalities.
>>         7. A few weeks after the accident we had a substantial
