Alone, scared, and lonely

Our vehicle was towed away earlier this week because I parked it on the street momentarily during the day, and completely forgot to move it back to the driveway at dusk. Our neighbourhood strictly enforces a no street parking from 00:00 to 06:00, so we paid the consequences of an old mind’s oversight.

Other than having to pick it up, spending time, and money–it cost $125 to get it back–we worried about the poor automobile. It was alone, scared, and lonely, in an unknown territory. We wondered if it had thoughts like “Where are they taking me?” – “What is this dirty place?” – “What am I doing here?” – “What have I done to deserve this?” – “I am so scared!” and so on. 😢
