So Anyway.....

....I'm driving back from a meeting I had in Indiana, tooling up Interstate 69 and rocking out to the Carpenters (rural Indianan radio is a bit behind the times) when understandably, I start getting REALLY sleepy. I rolled down the windows, started chain smoking and cranked up some religious talk show on AM radio so that I could be assured of a one way trip to Hell if I voted in favor of stem cell research while I tried to keep from passing out. Finally I came across a rest area, pulled into a parking spot, put my seat back and tried to take a little nap.
No sooner had I fallen asleep when I heard the passenger side door of my car suddenly open. Just as I managed to pry my right eye open to see what was going on, I saw a young woman plop herself down on the seat next to me. She then turned towards me, opened her eyes wider than they had probably ever been opened before and then let out an ear-piercing, blood-curdling scream that scared the living shit out of me. I jumped, smashed my knees into my steering wheel and shot straight up while I watched her run back full bore towards the rest rooms.
My guess is that she just got into the wrong car. It is either that or I need to come to the realization that I have a face that not even a rest stop hooker could love. To keep my self esteem from plummeting to new depths, I was going to check to see if there was another car in the parking lot that looked like mine but decided it would be best to just get out there as quickly as possible before I became an unwitting participant in some sort of Amber Alert. The only way that could have looked worse to passers by would have been if she had run screaming not out of my passenger side door, but the trunk.
