Oh, my phone is dead again! Want to know why? Well, I just spent 2 hours on a call with my friend. He loves gossips and I was caught in one of his epic tale!
Today, he narrated this story to me.
Me and my other eight friends were traveling for a weekend trip. The street was scary, reminds me of the Elm Street. It was already too late. But we were lucky to have a good chauffeur with us as none of us knew how to drive.
It was around 2am that the car suddenly stopped in the middle of nowhere. Scared to death, we started panicking. We asked the driver to get out and check what's wrong. He agreed and got off. It was foggy outside and we were hardly able to see anything.
It was about 30 minutes now that the driver has gone. It was the time when we needed to be really scared. Somehow, we managed to spend 30 more minutes. But alas, the driver didn't return. But there was a thud on the window from outside. And then another and more. It was like we were surrounded by mob. Probably they were some kind of nearby tribal people or may be thieves or err.. the zombies?
Whoever they were, we were struggling! We locked out doors and decided to stay in and make a call. But, the phones were not working as we have lost the signals. We finally decided to try starting the car. And to our surprise it started. The engine swiftly turned on. BUT.... Who will drive? None of us knew how to drive. So, we decided to make a list of who can do what and what could be done to get out of this horrible situation. And following were the things we came up with this arbitrary list -
Alex - He owns a Cab.
Monty - He likes the Moon
Ethan - He can Feed the animals
Garry - He has this weird devilish laugh Hihihihihi
Joshua -He has Thousand dollars.
Paul - He loves his PS-7. (Oh, he really has that version)
Will - He likes to Zzzzzz all day long, yeah he hardly stays awake.
Victor- He has the biggest TV.
And then there was me - I was the Jon Snow of all because I knew nothing - A Blank! :) But I always stood first in my class!
Well, once the above list was done, I looked at it and I thought it was hilarious. I told them this was no fun. There is an important call to make. Our lives are on line. And then, they all got seriously involved in making a better list and came up with this -
Victor, Ethan, Paul, Garry and Monty - Can grab the Steering.
Paul, Alex, Joshua, Ethan - Can apply the Brakes.
Monty, Garry, Paul - Can use the Horn.
Ethan, Alex, Garry, Paul - Can handle the Gears.
Will - Garry, Ethan, Paul - Can use the Wipers.
Joshua, Alex, Ethan, Victor, Paul, Garry - Can handle the Acceleration.
So, it was confirmed that there won't be a single person who is going to take us home but may be two, three or more. After a lot of thinking, and brainstorming I decided who is going to drive us home. But, before revealing to my friends, I needed to check my phone one last time. And to my bad, it was still the same, without any signals.
Finally, the drivers were ready and we took off. Guess what? We reached safely back home.
Wasn't the story a little weird? You think it’s a made up one? Oh, yes! It is a made up one. But conceptually true. So, who cares! Hope you had fun reading it. Oh wait, now that you know how the story went, don't you want to find out who were the legendary saviors? To know the truth, you just need to connect the dots and fill in the blanks. No, I won’t tell you how. I will simply ask you two questions -
1. Who DROVE the car?
2. Who were the friends?
