Ran out of gas while leaving work in Detroit and took the wrong exit off the highway. Immediately realized that (a) there would be no gas station here, and (b) if there was a gas station here, I should not stop. Passed through an entire neighborhood of overgrown abandoned lots, broken houses and some listless young faces hanging out on a busted up playground, watching me from the swings.

A friend pointed out that this is a somewhat ridiculous time of year in Detroit, because some people put up Halloween decorations… in neighborhoods where it is just not necessary.
