I had a dream when I was 12-13 years old. I dreamt that I was sitting on the floor in my parents living room watching TV. No big deal. Then the door to the garage opens and my mom and a girl I’ve never seen comes in and as they walk past me, the mystery girl steals a kiss on my lips. Being 12-13 years old it was the kind of kiss that spreads tingles up and down my spine. I never had kissed a girl at that time but it felt like love. That kiss affected me because I felt love before I new what it was.
Skip to me at about 26 years old. Sitting on the floor, watching tv at my parents house. Garage door opens and my mom and my girlfriend walk in. They walk to the kitchen and she steals a kiss on the way. I immediately get insane tingling up my spine and that dream comes rushing back to me. We have been together for 8 years now and we are still madly in love. I’d argue soulmate.
My dad and I were in the truck on the NE extension of the PA turnpike once, coming up to the Lehigh Tunnel, which probably around 1/8 – 1/4 mile in length. Traffic has slowed down prior to the tunnel, leaving us stuck to crawl through the tunnel at a few miles an hour. We just assume there was something past the tunnel causing the hold up. However, halfway through the tunnel traffic turns into one lane, but awkwardly, not as a well defined passing situation.
As we reach the choke point we finally see what’s cause the backup. In the middle of the tunnel, oriented in the wrong direction is a Honda Civic covered and surrounded by raw meat. As in, large chunks of what must have been pig and chicken parts (definitely not beef, no red meat). The driver seemed fine, and was just staring down at his lap making no attempt to get his car out of the way, or clean the bits off of it. There was no meat truck stopped, and the whole seen was very centralized, not drawn out like meat had slowly fallen out of another vehicle.
To this day we have no idea what actually happened, and Bill Murray might as well have been there because nobody ever fucking believes me. But it happened.
