Or, perhaps, it was a failed assassination

So there I was, minding my own business in a queue of traffic, when a huge silver 4×4 thing drove into the back of me. It wasn’t too jarring, but was enough that I needed to check for damage. In the mirror I saw Big Silver Man wave an oops/apology. Happily, there was a car park entrance within a couple of metres, so I pulled into that, expecting BSM to follow. He didn’t. I got out of the car, couldn’t see anything broken, looked up again and saw him still parked in the queue. I didn’t really know what to do at this point, so got back into the car. In the mirror I saw BSM point at me, then drive away. I guess he must have thought everything was ok, which it was, but I’m surprised he didn’t pull in to check.
