It wasn't my faultMy wife and I were driving along a main road one afternoon. My wife was driving; I was... passengering, I suppose youd call it. We were travelling south, if any one cares. I was watching the white van on the road straight in front of us. It had tiny little wheels, for a van. The wheels were about the size of those on a shopping trolley cart.
