heh. i saved America tonight.

from my facebook, cos i'm too lazy to tell the story again:

She was a brokedown girl that fell while crossing the street when I was stopped at the intersection of Pine and 15th. She didn't try to get up and just remained laying on the street, so I had to get out of the car and help her up. I asked if she was ok and if she needed help getting to where she was going. She was too drunk to even make sense. I ... Read Morethink she said something about her friend having a drunk shoe. I thought about leaving her and sending her on her way, but didn't want her to get mugged or taken advantage of. I've had two too many friends have bad experiences with muggers lately. Thankfully, she knew her address and it was only a few blocks from where we were, so it wasn't too out of the way to drive her home. We made our introductions in the car and she told me her name was America. I asked if she was Filipino (they have a habit of naming kids after places) and she said yes. I told her I have a cousin in the Philippines named Florida. She didn't believe me and thought I was just making fun of her. It's true, though. I do have a cousin named Florida. I dropped her off at her house and made sure she got in her house (after I watched her try to unlock the door for more than 2 minutes). I resisted the urge to say, "God bless, America!"

That's how I saved America.
