The parking lot from where I flew off of.
downhill...to park somewhere down there at the edge of a creek.
Many hours later, my car emerged with a few dents. Nissan Altima - a great car for off roading!
Radom guy who witnessed the whole scene of my car charging down the hill was so happy to see me alive that he hugged me with tears of happiness.
Cop: Is that your husband?
I am sticking with the mechnical failure story. The brakes just failed! The things I had to hear after everyone realised I was safe, completly unhurt, wasn't suicidal, drunk or plain insane (last point will be contested in the court)-
Cop: Ma'am, are you sure it was not a human error? *gives me a look that is reserved for blondes*
Cop: You are an aviation engineer, you must know it takes wings to fly.
Cop: No wonder husband travels. He must feel safe that way.
Little girl of five: Wow! That must have been scraier than Atlantis!!(roller coaster ride in Universal)
Me: No sweetheart, it wasn't. *trying to hide the wild heart beats*
Little girl: Can I get a ride?
Me: How much did Atlantis charge? (Parents pull the kid away after telling me Jesus lives)
Good news- I found my lost set of keys that came flying on my face while I was trying every possible way to come to a stop on the steep slope. Good thing I didn't stop on the slope. Would have overturned for sure and my brains would have come flying out. Some lost and found moment that would have been!
All said and done, thankful to be alive! The only scratch I got was from a bush that I walked on while climbing up.
All women drivers, I hope I didn't malign your name further.
