Marcel was sick and tired of the world; of Covid 19, the expected Trump win
in the 2020 election, China and Russian belligerence, global warming, racial
tensions, Antifa burning down cities, and the rest of the disturbing stories
that occupy media headlines.
Marcel drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and
window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the
windows, selected his favorite radio station and started the car.
Two days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw
him in the car. She notified the emergency services and they broke in,
pulling Marcel from the car. A little sip of water and, surprisingly, he was
in perfect condition, but his Tesla had a dead battery.
