This has been the scene downtown Brevard for at least 2 months.
2 months or more (I forget when it happened) I drove past this sight and today I finally took time to stop and take a couple of pictures.
It makes me think about that poor driver every time I go past. I mean, really, what was he/she thinking? This is the site of an old gas station, I think, and it has not been in use for the entire time we have lived here. So I think the truck driver had a delivery someplace and thought this would be the perfect spot to chill out for a little bit.
But not so much.
It looks like it took the whole thing out. And I suspect it has not been moved because they are waiting for insurance to figure it all out. What a mess.
But it makes me think about all of the times I have underestimated something – with dire results. Pulling into the garage a little too close on one side. Cutting it too close when pulling out in traffic. Grabbing a hot dish out of the oven without potholders. You get the picture. We all do things.
But on the other hand, isn’t it good to take chances sometimes? Not with things that can be harmful or dangerous but in ways that allow us to take a little bit of a risk and maybe stretch ourselves a bit.
I think it is good to challenge ourselves and do things that sometimes stretch us. I have found a couple of things lately that are stretching me and honestly – it’s a good thing.
Lesson learned today? Make sure you have plenty of overhead when parking your beer truck and don’t take a risk with something like that but maybe, just maybe, take a risk to do something a little bit outside of your comfort zone.
