I read mostly science fiction, suspense, and horror. It's what I started with when I was younger (not the horror), and I just kept with it. I had an active imagination when I was growing up and I think those kind of books tapped into that imagination. I'm no longer afraid to go into my mom's basement, but when you think about it, wouldn't it be cool if there were monsters living down there?
Anyway, to the point of the post. The other day as I was taking my son to school I realized we forgot his lunch. Not a big deal, the school is close, so I told him I'd go get it and drop it off. As I was driving to the school, I happened to notice a black Escalade behind me; those cars (trucks?) are hard to miss. I didn't pay much attention to it though until I noticed it was behind me again on the way back. I noticed the same handicapped decal hanging from the mirror and the guy driving. I thought it was an odd coincidence, but it was on a heavily traveled road, he could have dropped something off up the street. I stopped into Walgreen's on the way home, and as I turned in the lot I saw the car drive passed and continue up the road. I thought it was odd, obviously since I was paying attention to it, but again, busy street. I went into Walgreen's, walked to the back to find the pop I want to get, and turn to leave. I see a man in the aisle that I swear was in the black Escalade. I'm wasn't positive, but I was pretty sure. I went up to pay and walked outside. The black Escalade was parked right by the door. The same handicapped decal in the windshield. I got in the car and headed home watching the rearview mirror.
The car didn't show up again.
So, what did I do the that Feds are after me? Did I post some secret information on my blog unknowingly?
Now, I know it was all a coincidence and everything, but really, what are the chances? I told my wife about it when I went home. She thought it was weird too. I told her that if I look out the window and that Escalade is out there I was going to call the cops. It wasn't. I'm safe. For now. (Start creepy music)
I really should post in the middle of the night...
