The road trip that never happened
I was in a car with a man and his girlfriend, driving through the snow.
As I drove down a hill, we heard an engine starting up.
He leaned in the driver’s side window and said, “There’s a car coming.”
I looked over and he was gone.
I looked back at the window, but he was nowhere to be seen.
A few days later, we were driving down the same road.
The engine was still running.
The man in the passenger seat said, I’m in the process of getting my license plate and my insurance.
The license plate was a gold mine.
I was confused.
I drove home and asked my mom what I should do.
She told me to keep the car for myself.
I started driving, thinking that I was supposed to get my license, and eventually, the car became a bit of a treasure trove.
The owner of the car kept saying, “You need to keep it.”
I kept thinking, Why not?
The car had been a treasure since I was young.
I had a dream.
I told my mom about it.
Then, I got an email.
I got a call from the owner of this car saying, I can’t sell it.
I think I may be the first person to ever sell a car that I’ve been in.
I have no money, but I do have my name on it.
So, now I have a little piece of history, and that’s all I want.
I am in a very good position.
I’m still on my own and it’s not like I’m rich.
It’s been a wonderful ride.
I still have my license and my drivers license.
I drive a black car.
The first time I drove, I had no idea what it was for, and I was shocked.
But I am a good driver.
It was an incredible ride.
You have a lot of freedom.
I didn’t think about it at the time, but now, I’ve grown into it and I’m very grateful.
It makes you think, Why am I still driving?
You are free.
You don’t have to pay taxes.
You can do whatever you want.
This car is my legacy.
I’ve had so many opportunities in my life to take care of people, but this is one of the most important things.
My dad was a truck driver, and he used to say, “We’re not doing anything wrong.
The roads are beautiful.”
But now, it’s my responsibility to look after my family.
This is my home.
