1) I'm working on a highway construction crew, and it's the end of the day and we're driving home. I'm sitting in the bed of a pickup truck with a few other guys. We're driving down this narrow highway with big walls on either side. Suddenly, a big barrel starts rolling at us, but because of the walls, the driver can't go around it. The barrel bounces right over us. Then another one, which also bounces over us. Then a really big barrel comes at us. Each time, we think it's going to kill us, but it keeps bouncing over us. We stop the truck to check out the big barrel. Then we see another truck coming toward us. We think it's going to help us take care of all the barrels, but it just keeps charging toward us. Just when we think it's going to hit us, it starts to fly over us. The tail end of the truck lands on me and two other guys. It feels like it's crushing us, but we don't die.

2) I'm at a really big church, attending a service on Sunday morning. After the service, I'm walking out and see a little shop next to the exit. I go inside and buy a poster. When I pay for it, the cashier girl apologises because it's a really expensive poster. I tell her I don't care. There are two girls in line behind me, and they are giggling. I glance at them, and one says, "You smell like alcohol!" I tell the cashier girl I'd also like a Corona, and she rings it up and hands it to me. Then the girl behind me says, "Your fingernails are dirty!" I tell her I work construction, and then I give her the poster I just bought. They both giggle some more. I walk outside with the beer and start drinking it. I'm trying to remember where I parked, and I'm trying to think of the best place to drink the beer. I don't want to sit in my truck and drink it, but there aren't any tables or anything around.
