Her car comes to a slow stop and she places the stick in ‘’P’’. There seems to be an unforeseen fork in the road—this intersection didn’t show up on Google maps. One direction reads Hugh Hefner—an entrepreneur known for building an empire all while wearing a silk robe. The other reads Rosie The Riveter—one of feminism’s first symbols of female strength in America. Perhaps after the long drive cross country from New York to Los Angeles, this is merely a mirage, possibly a message from her subconscious—a confliction within her moral compass? It’s important to know one thing, neither one of these have to be the correct choice. She puts the car in reverse and goes back a few feet, just enough to gain a few miles per hour more. The car is now back in forward motion and smashes through the sign post, bringing the car to a halt. Tufts of smoke and steam billow from the engine, obviously showcasing the problem. Well, when you pack light, you can walk. And when the road gives you two choices, take both.
