You know that old saying that you're safer in a plane than you are in a car? Don't people use that to convince those afraid of flying that flying is safe? Well, after what I saw today, I'm not sure which if either is true or not.
First let me say that all sorts of weird things happened on our way to the hayride. We were supposed to meet my friend to follow her at 2:30, but I got delayed before I ever left town. I started to the recycling place and the road was closed to due some accident. We took a detour. Then, the lady in the car in front of me at the recycling place had locked her keys in her car and was obstructing the drive. We managed to squeeze between her and the recycle bins. Then, we were on our way to Walmart to pick up batteries for flashlights for exploring the caves during the hayride. I turned off my main interstate onto the one heading south to go to Walmart and was almost immediately stuck in bottle necked traffic. What the heck? So, obviously, there was an accident. I wasn't sure what type, but the traffic was still flowing, just slowly. Then we got to the accident sight and there was a PLANE sitting in the middle of the south bound lane of the interstate. I was on the phone with a friend and I think my exact words were, "Crap! There's a plane in the middle of the road!" And yes, she asked me to repeat myself. ROFL When I finally got to Megan's house 15 minutes late, she said she's heard all sorts of excuses for my tardiness before but the plane in the middle of the road pretty much wins the top spot.
Well, here's my proof - a photo taken from the news website. :)
It really makes me wonder if this weird day has anything to do with the deceased black cat that was in the street in front of my house this morning. We came home tonight and someone had lovingly taken it off the street and put it in the grass at the corned of my yard. *rolleyes*
I think I've had just about as much excitement as I can handle for one day. ;) Well, at least enough weirdness.
