A Car Crashes into a River.


Driving along the road, I come to a bridge.  For some reason, I veer off the bridge and plunge my car into the muddy, brown, flood waters of the Little Miami river below.  Once my car hits the water, I think to myself that I need to crack the windows to slow the amount of water flowing in before I make my way out.  I am the epitome of calm.  I look in the passenger seat, and think to myself that I need to grab my bag, even though I know I should not, but I want to.  I glance in the backseat and notice that the two car seats are empty.  I am thankful for this.
