Road Trip

From Linda G Hill: The prompt for  Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “pro/con.” Talk about the pros and cons of anything.

I could find a road, you know one of those roads that people stay away from because they’re out in the middle of nowhere and there’s this story about a car crash where all anyone found was three of the victims fingers embedded in smashed up windshield and one shoe  with a foot in it out  in the middle of the road minus a leg and the rest of the parts that are attached to it.

The locals, of course,  called this road Three Fingers.

For years and years until things got modern and they started to clear the road of trees and deadfall and when they brought one tree down close to the road they found the driver of the car- well parts of him -stuck up in the tree near the place where the car crashed.

I could find a road like that and drive down it maybe during a snow storm or just before Halloween and I bet I’d see something like-

a Hitchhiker with a limp and some missing fingers-  I’m sure it would be just a coincidence but I could dine on a story like that for years, so sure I’d take a trip down a road like that.

I’m not sure if there would be a down side to taking a drive down that road unless of course you take into account that nobody knows exactly why the Driver crashed that car. Was he drunk? Did he fall asleep at the wheel? Or did he see something in the middle of the road that made him slam on his brakes and sent him head first into the place where urban legends are from?

That could be a con to this entire Pro-Con argument that I have going on in my head right now. Would I be willing to take that chance?

Let me think about that for a minute.


Minute is up.

” BRB ” as the cool kids say.

I’ll let you know how it goes, providing of course I have all my fingers and can write it all down when I get back.
