Anonymous' Story

I’d been home for a day or two and the jetlag still had me firmly in its grip. I smiled drowsily into the warmth of the sun as it shone directly onto my face. I was Fairfield-bound, to visit my daughter, but the Punt Road traffic was bumper to bumper. So I slipped the car into neutral and, for half a millisecond, I shut my eyes...

I woke with a start. There were cars on all sides moving slowly. They streamed around me, not noticing or caring that I'd been asleep for half an hour!
