The life of an over the road long haul truck driver was a lonely existence. It was the only thing he had left after the divorce. He had to make a living and that was the only experience he had in life. It was a lonely existence. Very lonely indeed. He longed for some excitement in his boring life.

“Continue 23 miles on Interstate I-95”

He had plugged the address into his GPS before he left to meet his new on-line friend. In her picture on the internet she looked fabulous. Well we all exaggerate a little he thought. Even if she is half as pretty he would be happy. Beside his profile picture made him look like Tom Cruise.

“Take exit 354 in 5 miles.”

“Exit 354 and then turn left for 3 miles.”

“In 1 mile your destination is on your right.”

He was getting more excited by the minute. A quick look at his lap confirmed his intention.

Before him was a massive traffic jam. His mood was deflating before his eyes as he came to a complete stop.

“Recalculating.”

  1. Anxious moments, so close, yet so far away! If he isn’t on a time schedule, he is bound to reach his destination…but, what happens after that…will all the anxiety have been worth it. Great story…lots of questions and possibilities. šŸ™‚

  2. LOL!! What did we do before there were GPS systems? My kids bought me one for Mother’s Day and I love the thing! It got me to Phoenix, around Phoenix, and back home safe and sound. Great story Danny! Too bad about the traffic jam. Hahaha!
