When I was about three years old my family owned a red van that had a type of carseat built into one of the passenger seats. This was my favorite seat to sit in. The only problem is that when I would buckle myself into this seat, I was never able to unbuckle myself; I always needed my older sister or my parents assistance. One day, when my family was driving down a back road, (with me in the back buckled snuggly in my seat)we hit a deer. The engine in front started to smoke, so my dad told us all to get quickly out of the van. We all did as we were told. Amazingly I swiftly unbuckled myself. My sister came to unbuckle me to find that I was already out of the van, waiting for her. My family can testify that I didn't do it alone, my guardian angel helped unbuckle me that day.
