Time Goes By Even When You Don't Look At Your Clock

I got lost while following the directions to a friend's new house. I stopped at the end of a one-way dead end street. A traffic officer and a tow truck were waiting.

I got out of my car and walked to the police officer. She watched impassively as I approached.

"Will I be ticketed and towed if I pull out of here?" I asked.

"Yes," she said sadly, "unless you can tell me how longanberries and allen wrenches are related."

I pondered, then gave up. When I couldn't find the answer, I got mad at the question. "It's kind of cheap for you to be waiting here at a one-way dead end," I complained.

"Oh no," she said, "It's not like that. We're stuck here too."

And we're all still there.
