Death By Taco (and truck)


I was driving to the office the other day on I90, letting my mind drift from thoughts of work to contemplative analysis of what am I doing with my life when it was rudely interrupted by a brief encounter with death. A Taco Truck merged three lanes of traffic causing me to veer off the road, nearly missing a road construction sign that was held up by a ten ton street sweepeing truck. Thankful to “cat-like speed and reflexes” I managed to skirt the taco-packing truck but not before making a sound like this:

Well, I thought I needed to share that because if I were to buy the farm via tacos, truck or a street sweeper, I would want you to know that I went out in the style I choose; something to keep the obituary lighthearted.

*Another “Where Did you Go” post is almost done and…and…Macabre Fitness is being resurrected. I am on the last couple of weeks before my first marathon in a few years. I need a new fitness forum to complain and bellyache.*

  1. So wish I could have been there. First to yell and join in on the exposing of middle fingers. Then to laugh at your girly-scream.

    I was just thinking about Macabre Fitness the other day because I was going to drop you a line. I’m thinking about getting back into running and wanted your advice or recommendations on what kind of shoes to get.

  2. Wow, lucky…it must be a sign…although you may not realize what that sign is, becasue it’s probably written in Spanish. (I have no idea where I was going with that btw)

    Macabre Fintess? This is exciting! My goal is still to do a marathon (or half…depending on the hill count). I shall cancel my subscription to “Runners Wold” and follow your words of wisdom instead. (besides, it’s cheaper this way)

  3. Death by Taco.
    Man, that would have sucked.
    Glad you made it out alive.

  4. Will! You can NOT be getting killed by a Taco Truck. Or by anything at all….live forever please.

  5. Just yesterday, I actually flipped off Rudy becuase I was following him and he caused me to run a red light.
    But that’s becuase he was following someone who caused rudy to ALMOST run a red light.

    Still, uber suckage.

    So… in some vague way, I feel your pain.

  6. OMG billy. So, I was out there last week, and totally waved at you in Spokane. Also, one of my vacation goals was to eat at a taco truck. Love ’em.
