As I was walking Rory toward the park, I saw a car stalled in one of the lanes on Central Park West. A taxi cab was behind it, and a police car after that. As we approached, the police officers were opening the car doors.
Everyone in the car was fast asleep. The driver was slumped over the wheel. The passenger in the back was laid out flat.
The officer poked them both with his nightstick. It took awhile to wake them up, but eventually they both roused.
A million scenarios from TV and movies went through my mind. Did someone hijack their car and knock them out? Were they overcome by fumes? Were they victims of alien abduction? But it’s probably like a friend of mine said…
They just passed out drunk at the light.
