The Road Turned, the Car Didn't
The roads were curved. The night was dark. I was lost. I didn't own a cell phone. I was still in high school. My boyfriend was calling my cousin, who just HAD to live in the middle of nowhere, trying again to get instructions.
I made it up the windy road only to find a dead end and not my cousin's house. I made a U-turn and began the descent down the road and then...I still don't know what happened. I caught some dirt, didn't quite turn and as I tell people when they ask about my car, "the road turned..I didn't."
I landed upside down in a ravine. Thankfully it was someone's yard. We knocked on their doorbell and were greeted by a smiling couple, "Did you land in our yard?" the man asked as the woman welcomed us in, "Not to worry. Second time this month. If we knew you were coming we would have saved dinner! Would you like some desert?"
How awful that the road is so poorly designed this family is used to cars landing upside down in their backyard!
