My first brush with the big ‘D’ came when I was still in High school .

My parents had been divorced for quite some time .

When my mother remarried and moved to Florida with her new hubby I decided that

I would go to live with my Father for awhile .

Dad was the chief of police in a small town in Washington State called Summit .

Dad gave me an old pickup to drive to school , and I quickly made friends in the small town .

One rainy morning as i was getting out of my truck in the school parking lot,

A van , driven by another student who was speeding , went out of control

And was skidding sideways directly towards me !

At the last possible second , a boy named Edward miraculously appeared and pulled

me backwards just enough , so that the van missed hitting us just by inches .

It was almost as if he had just put his hand out and stopped the van with brute force .

I was very grateful to be alive ….....but something seemed very odd about the whole thing .

It was a relief when I found out later that Edward was a Vampire . That explained a lot .

@ poopiekat , That is the first “touch of death ” for Occie’s brilliant , if now missing ,

” Tell me of your first touch of Death ” topic . Your use of the word “kill ” , while very

very funny and ironic , i consider somewhat of an ” overkill ”. Overkill is usefull , because as

we have seen on the ” Please Kill The Hand Plane of My Dreams ” topic . Many commenters jumped in

quickly with steely knifes and tongs ,(yeah , the salad kind ), to save ” The Hand Plane of Your Dreams ” .

Bravely saving that topic , and securing the future of hand plane discussions for years to come .

If you are not joking , The same good folks will show up on this thread and will no doubt berate

you mercilessly and raise all kinds of hell !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I have a feeling you are joking .

@ Charlie What the heck are you trying to say with that video ?!

I feel that the OP was asking for your experience , and not some hyped up

Hollywood version where actors get paid to die , and special F/X techs get paid to

make viewers hurl . Please don’t make me have to fly to Costa Rica , track down Occie

at the market , and convince him to block your so called ” contributions ” to this somber topic !

I have tried to relate a true story about my experience . Let’s keep it real , please .

( P.S. ...that thing about ” Vampire ” was just my way of saying that Edward was always borrowing money ).

Someone saves your life and then never repays loans , go figure .
