This is craziness. I know…it is random… but one of my biggest fears is being in a car, in traffic, on a bridge and the bridge collapses.
I know! Where does that come from? I have actually spent some time learning and watching videos about how to get out of the car if it ever happens. I hate to actually bring it up because I believe what we focus on, we draw into our lives so I’m not gonna talk about it too long…
But here goes…I lag back and let cars pass me if we are coming to a bridge in rush hour traffic. I wonder how I can get my electric windows down to get out if the car isn’t running under water. Am I strong enough to kick out the window? Would I have enough air to wait until the outside pressure and inside pressure are equalized so I could open the door? What if the impact knocked me out? What then? What if…what if…what if…?
Whew! Okay, I’m done. You know what started this whole thing? A few years ago, a movie came out about the Mothman Prophecies. In it, a small town’s bridge collapsed and it was a horrible tragedy with many killed. I don’t know, it just stuck with me and here I am talking about it.
So, to answer the question…I hope I never have to find out if I am strong enough to kick out my car or truck window while under water.
Does anyone else have irrational fears? Quit laughing.
