You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

Several years ago I was traveling, by myself, from Tampa to Orlando on I-4. I had been in a hurry that day and forgot my cell phone. What a strange feeling that is. There was a big flatbed truck traveling in front of me. The truck hit a bump and some junk bumped off the trunk and into the road. I hit the junk and blew a tire. Then I pulled over to the side of the road. Just then, the car behind me pulled over. I thought to myself, “Great, now I’m going to get mugged!” Out of the car jumped two lesbians. They told me that they saw my rainbow stickers on the car and stopped to help me! The ladies were a couple traveling from Chicago and had a cell phone to help out. We all laughed about it all. On their way home, the ladies stopped in Ybor City to have drinks with me.
