There are many times I can write about feeling unsafe that are true but the one that is most recent comes to my head.
The car in front of us stopped without warning. There was no way to get over to the other lane. I knew we would hit them. I cringed inside as I told my boyfriend to please slow down. He turned the car so we only hit her with one side of his car. His car and the car in front of us colliding made a loud bang. My cell phone fell to the floor. My sweet tea fell all over my body and I bite my lip hard. It was total silence after. I quickly asked if my boyfriend was ok. He nodded and we drove over to a parking lot to park. The person hit followed in our suite. She was mad and yelled before saying she was going to call the police. I was still shaken up from the impact of the cars hitting. Why was she trying to go across double yellows in the first place?

Your local electronics store has just started selling time machines, anywhere doors, and invisibility helmets. You can only afford one. Which of these do you buy, and why?
One of the movies I remember from my childhood is Monster’s Inc. In that movie the monsters go everywhere by coming through closet doors to scare children. I never wanted to be the one scared but I really liked the concept that those monsters could enter a place far away from them, states, countries away but just one door.
I like the idea of not having to get in the car to drive or anything, just stating my destination and simply going through a door to get there. I would never have to deal with traffic and I would never be late for work.
These doors are called ‘anywhere doors’ so I take that as it doesn’t matter where I wish to go and that I could use it as a time machine, also. I would go places here, and there, everywhere. I would go in the past, and to the future.
