Did you turn the car off and on before the drive? I find that doing so seems to reset its erratic (well, "normal" if you're Ford) behavior. Next time it does this (and there will be a next time) see if you can pull into the service department and flag someone down without turning the car off - or shifting it out of drive - if that's even possible...
