The shortcut
by Belladonna

„I swear if you tell anybody about this...“
-“Oh, I won't. It's embarassing as it is.“
„I know, still it wasn't my fault.“
-“Says the one who's been driving. Didn't you see where you were going?“
„'course I did. It looked like an empty parking lot I could take a shortcut over.“
-“We've been here before. There never was an empty parking lot here.“
„It's dark....“
-“It's barely seven, that doesn't count as dark for an evening.“
„Still looked like a parking lot to me.“
-”Starsky, you've managed to put the Torino in the fountain in front of the courthouse!“

Author's notes: This was inspired by a news report I've seen on television of an actual event where just that happened. And during the rescue a second car drove in the fountain mistaking it for a parking space as well.
