Grrrrrrr! TRUCKS! Errrrrrr! *bad word! bad word!*
In my most recent travels, I got the privilege of spending my time with the bullies of the road. My poor little car and I felt very nerves to say the least! All it would take is one of those gigantic wheels and my little car would be finished! My car, which Iíve affectionately named Fizz, *For some reason I have this weird need to name every little inanimate object, I don't know I guess Iím just crazy* ANYWAYS, my car, Fizz and I were coming to an intersection and to my horror I realized I was trapped! There were three ENORMOUS trucks trying to merge into the lane Fizz was in, and behind me I had a giant orange truck tailgating me! So close in fact that I couldnít see his bumper! Now on the side of me, the left lane where you are suppose to merge into during a situation such as this, there was another victim of the evil trucks! Of course though he was a little bigger than my little car, but still an insect to the bullies of the road! I now realized I was trapped! The three giant trucks that where trying to merge into my lane, were not going to slow down, the truck behind me was not going to slow down! And the trucks behind the poor other victim *which was a van* were not going to slow down either! I had horrible visions of being completely smashed! Pan-caked between two large bullies! To say the least, I was scared!
I must say though, that what I did end up doing was probably selfish on my part, but tell me what would you have done! Anyways, back to the story...
I realized that if I didnít do something quick my vision would become reality! I didn't want to die victim to a truck! And I certainly didn't want my Fizz to be crumpled! So I was faced with two options, I could either, (a) stay in the lane I was in, and possibly be creamed, or I could, (b) jump in front of the van *which was probably filled with a family of 7* and possibly be the reason for killing a van full of kids!
I was selfish, I admit, and chose the option (b)... I wasn't prepared to be creamed by my archenemy of the road! It all ended out just fine though, as my little Fizz was quick and clever! I pulled out in front of the van, and made it safely as the large trucks bellowed on by me... I let out a sigh; I had made it and was now ready to take the angry honking of the van behind me.
