"I was in Med school and was going to go to help/volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House Halloween party," writes Jamie Lyn Reinschmidt of Roseville.
"On my way there, I went into the ditch, fairly close to home but unfortunately still too far away. I was taken to the service station close by and had to wait for my car to be retrieved. The only hitch was that I was in my costume in order to be ready: a black cat complete with tail..."
"...I could not count how many comments I received while waiting (lots of "cat calls" as it were). Unfortunately, I never got to the party myself but the party did go on for the families/kids."
