about this story

It was raining AGAIN. Which usually isn't an issue except Nancy lived in a swamp in Louisiana and the Civic she had been tooling around in had a flooded engine again.

That's when she knew she had to take matters into her own hands. She went to the altar of her spiritual guru who had died decades ago, but whose likeness was visited by old and young alike for guidance on life's most important problems. She typed her question into the official prayer request/seeking guidance portal and waited for a sign.

A few weeks later while hanging out at her house (you know, the tan dome at the end of the cul-de-sac), she got a message to meet two men at an office in New Orleans on letterhead from the spiritual guru's office. Intrigued, she showed up only to encounter these two dorks with MACs. Her tune changed when she learned they had received a grant from an anonymous source to build a hovercraft for her use! After detailing what she wanted (performance, extra tough rubber, and would prefer purple for an interior color), they told her they would be in touch...

Nancy was on her way home from work. It had been a dry October and LSU was having a bad football season. Her spirits were down. Her new hovercraft hadn't even been able to get used--she had been stuck using it in automobile mode since it was delivered in late September. Imagine her glee when it began to rain...and rain and rain and rain. When she saw the "road closed" sign due to flooding, she could hardly contain her excitement. She pulled over, switched from "auto" to "hover" mode and waited patiently for the rubber skirt to inflate that would take her over the river and through the woods to her home. Where Nancy was going, she didn't need any roads!!
