Or at least it felt like it. I had driven a few people to the event. And then now it was ending and everyone was heading to the parking lot.
Her friend looked at me and said, “It was great to meet you! See you!”
Then my friend said, “Yes! Thanks for driving. You know the way back?”
Surprised, I mumbled, “Um…yes…”
She nodded her acknowledgement while I mumbled, “But I am heading the same way you’re going…”
They rushed off to another car and suddenly I was alone in the parking lot, 20 miles from my place. With no passenger, no company and no direction.
