I had just jumped on the freeway. Glad to be on the way home. Looking forward to chatting with my fiancée to tell him that I was on the way home. Just hearing his voice makes me smile. Seeing his face pop up on my phone makes me smile. As I looked up to veer onto the on ramp, I got over behind an...
