Linda’s SoCS prompt is the word ‘How’.
How had it come to this?
One minute I was happy as Larry, next Larry had kicked me out on my ear.
Nothing for it but to get in the car and go.
But where? Now there was the thing.
No family, no friends as I was a stranger here.
My meagre possessions fitted inside the boot, and that was it.
My life in a trunk.
I’d done it before, not actually living in my car, but had indeed slept in it on more than one occasion.
Failed camping accommodation, house hunting, long journeys requiring a rest en route.
The most common reason was of course money, or rather lack of it.
Service stations were OK for wash and brush ups, and some even had showers, so no excuse not to keep clean.
Oh well. Off on a new adventure and write another chapter in my life.
Lady in a Van did that and it worked for her somehow!
