This is the second part of my crazy dream, and I would like all of you to play some Dr. Phil and analyze it. I'm sure there's a deeper meaning in there, but since I'm not fighting with Capricorn, work is going well and Obama has promised me his economic stimulus will revive the economy, I'm not sure what root cause of stress is here.
After escaping the bowling alley unscathed, I was driving with D down a highway, although not a familiar one. I get off at an exit, but cars are headed toward me as I merge on the new road. I can't figure out why, though, as I'm sure I've gotten off at the right exit. Soon, I realize this is because drivers are fleeing the melee ahead.
I start swerving my car left and right like a Honda Frogger, as we approach an 18-car (exactly 18) pile-up. It's the biggest wreck I've seen, VH1 reality shows not included. I'm almost home free, but then a car comes out of nowhere and smacks against my hood. D and I aren't hurt and, magically, are standing outside of the car a moment later. We end up getting on a school bus that for no apparent reason has been set up as Ground Zero, although no American flag is visible so I am dubious about this school's patriotism during a tragic situation.
There are lots of other people on the bus in various stages of medical duress; I'm surprised I don't see any Grey's Anatomy characters running around, as it might be more entertaining to watch Izzie moan about how George never loved her while she treats patients on a school bus. What really gets me is that I'm being asked to fill out a form about how I got in the accident, as I shout to the official that it was impossible not to get hit with all the cars spread around.
I am told my insurance won't cover the damage, and am given a traffic citation for unsafe driving in the amount of $8.28. Yes, an $8.28 ticket.
And then... I woke up.
