I left the gov’t building where I make my living as a gov’t bureaucrat kind of late; it was 7:15, and I really wanted to leave around 7:00 so that I can make it to kick boxing instruction on time. Even though the gym was not too far, I did not anticipate the level of traffic on the road. There was an unusually high volume; perhaps because it is Valentine’s Day and people are going to the restaurants, around the area.
It took a bit longer to arrive at my destination. Parking was scarce outside the gym. I was going to make a U-turn to go onto one of the side streets where a parking spot might be available. But I couldn’t make the U-turn because the rate of traffic hindered it. Lucky for me that the owner of the car that was parked next to my location got in his car and left, so I got that parking spot.
After all that was done, it was almost 8:00; it was too late to make the kick boxing instruction. But I can make it to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). That instruction will begin at 8:15, until then I decided to relax. The Breakfast club interview was being played on the radio while I reclined in the car’s seat.
Then I saw it was 8:10 on the car’s clock. I quickly turned off the radio slid the door open and went to exit the car. As I was exiting the car two people pushed their way in the car. They were wearing masks that looked like Santa clause, they were dressed in red. They looked creepy and the sight of them was scary.
I said to myself “what the hell is this? I’m being car jacked.” I punched one of them in the face, but it did not have any effect. I attempted to slide the door close; it caused a bottle neck which slowed them down.
Then something clicked in my brain, what a minute. My car door isn’t a sliding door; what is going on here. Then it darn to me that I might be in a dream state, and with my free will, banished the intruders. Then I was out of the dream state. When I looked at the clock it was 8:20, I saw that I am missing the BJJ warm up. I quickly got out the car, got my bag and went up to the gym.
