Almost accidentally killed myself yesterday
By underclass_ Story ID: 122
So I was visiting my parets yesterday. They are now retired and I only get myself to see them two times a year or so. We live in different countries now, so its hard to meet very often. It all happened by a bit of an accident, but that is a separate story.
Anyways, I was spending time with the folks and had a really great time the whole Saturday. My dad had also bought a new car since last time I visited, a gorgeous and very classy Mercedes. After dinner, he asked if I wouldnt be so nice to drive it into the garage for the night, because he was tired.
'Of course' I said. I drove the car in the garage, then closed the gate with the remote control and for a minute just admired the car, the interior, the scents of leather, the sleek design, the sound of the engine.. all of it. It really was a fabulous car. And then i started to feel strange, i drifted, things became blurry, and my head became heavy.
In a moment of clarity, I realize I had been running the engine inside the closed garage with my windw open and was inhaling fumes. I killed the engine, opened the car door and fell out of the car. I laid on the ground in a haze for what must have been a few minuetes before I regained my senses..
Inside, my father asked 'what took you so long'. I said I was just admiring his new car. But in realiy, I was probably close to killing myself in a freak accident. It would have made this story very different.
