Crashing to a Halt


2:00 a.m. on a Thursday morning, I pull up to a house. Lights flicker on the second floor, and I assume some college students are partying upstairs. Just a few more rides, and I’ll hit my target. By driving a total of twenty-five rides, Uber will give me a $70 bonus. I turn my hazard lights on and fiddle with my mobile phone.

Trust me. This diva never thought life would turn out this way.

A contract I had at a major tech company ended sooner than I had anticipated leaving me in a bind. I had begrudgingly moved from my spunky San Francisco neighborhood to the suburban doldrums of Silicon Valley to be closer to their headquarters. It was only a contract job, and after a mere ten months, they disposed of me like a used up paper plate at a pot luck dinner. I ruminate on this misfortune while waiting for my passenger to join me.

I feel intense pain and am disoriented. I’m going to die. I’m going to die. I don’t know what’s happening, but I struggle to open my car door.
