Living in Limbo

2 glasses of wine

So I was in a motor vehicle accident 2 weeks ago. A car was speeding and rear-ended me on the freeway while I was stopped in traffic, knocking me into the car in front. He then tried to flee the scene until I took out my phone and started copying down his license plate number.

Astoria, New York

We stepped out of the fluorescent-lighted restaurant and onto the lamplit sidewalk. The temperature that night was mild. I grabbed her hand as I hurried her along to the Bohemian beer garden.
