It must be true…
I read it in the tabloids
A North Carolina teen has not been able to remember what happened the day before for the past 20 months. On Oct. 12, 2017, Caitlin Little of Greensboro suffered a concussion during track practice. Now—as with the character played by Drew Barrymore in the movie Fifty First Dates—her mind resets overnight and purges memories of that day. Her father, Chris, tells Caitlin what day it is each morning—and directs her to a journal and notes she’s written about events she’s forgotten. “I’m always very hesitant every day, but it’s my job,” her dad said. “I have to tell her.”
A Long Island motorist was caught in a high-occupancy-vehicle lane with a mannequin in his passenger seat. Police say James Britt, 34, outfitted his fake companion in a cap, sunglasses, jeans, and a sweatshirt to speed past traffic on the notoriously congested Long Island Expressway. But an eagle-eyed traffic officer detected the ruse and pulled him over. “I would have to give that motorist some credit for ingenuity,” said a police official.
Two Florida swimmers swept out to sea by a strong current saw their prayers for rescue answered by a boat called Amen. High school seniors Heather Brown and Tyler Smith are now both crediting the Almighty for their deliverance. “While I was laying on my back, the best I could, floating,” said Smith, “I just called out, ‘God, please don’t let this be the end. I still want to see my family.… Send someone to save us.’” When the passing boat spotted and rescued them, Smith was sure his prayer had been answered. “There’s no other explanation,” he said. ■
