Was walking outside around 11 (a totally normal thing), and I noticed there was a car sitting in the street behind our row of houses. A car slowly driving behind the houses and slowing to a stop for a moment is not new, but a car just parked there is kinda strange even for this vacant lot.
I was walking that way anyway, so my plan was to casually look and see what was going on, just because that’s always fun. Halfway there, the car’s engine roars to life, squeals around the corner, and zooms right towards me.
It occurs to me maybe I should stop walking in that direction.
Car stops before the curve, turns around to the right, sharply, and speds back down the road they were sitting in, going so fast you’d think a dramatic explosion was occurring behind them.
I watch it fly down to the red light at the end of the street, slightly surprised it bothered to stop there.
And I shrugged and moved on.
