A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark, stormy night. The night dragged on without a single car going by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him.
Suddenly he saw a car coming slowly toward him then stop.
Without thinking about it, the guy got into the back seat, closed the door and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel!
The car started slowly; the guy looked at the road and saw a curve coming his way. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. He hadn't come out of shock when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the window and moved the wheel. The guy, paralyzed in terror, watched how the hand appeared every time right before a curve.
Gathering his strength, the guy finally jumped out of the car and ran to the nearest town. Wet and in shock, he went to a restaurant and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he went through.
A silence enveloped everybody when they realized the guy was serious.
About half an hour later, two guys walked in the same restaurant. They looked around for a table when one said to the other,
"Look, John! That's the guy who jumped in the back seat of the car when we were pushing it."
I was having trouble with the idea of turning 30 and was oversensitive to any signs of advancing age. When I found a prominent gray hair right at the front, I pointed to my forehead.
"Have you seen this?" I indignantly asked my husband.
"What?" he asked. "The wrinkles?"
