If this were a movie scene with the main character on the run, she’d be
looking over her shoulder, afraid she was being followed. Instead, this is
real life and I am on the run, looking over my shoulder, afraid I’m being
After a long flight from Los Angeles, I turned up at my parents’ place in
the middle of the night. Everyone knows New York City never sleeps. But
my parents do, and I figured I’d slide into the penthouse apartment without
disturbing them. Lucky me, they’re out of town. No surprise there. I counted
it as a bonus, considering my situation and the late hour.
However, the doorman informed me that my mother and father put me on
the “Do Not Let In” list. When I told him they must’ve gotten me mixed up
with someone else named Tinsley Humber, he gave me a sharp, “True New
Yorker” look that told me he’s seen it all, and nothing I could say or do

The guy was old enough to be my grandfather and while I’d like to see

from the building, I doubt they would’ve loaned me the vehicle so measures
had to be taken.
Yes, it’s stealing.
No, Mother, Father, and I are not on the best of terms.
But I promise I’m not a criminal. I consider this a rental.
My word might not be the most valuable currency, but at the moment, it’s
all I have. Other than grand theft auto, I have not committed a single crime.
However, I was prepared to give the guy in the garage the emergency onehundred-dollar bill in my wallet, so maybe theft with the intent to bribe is
also considered illegal.
But that’s the least of my problems.
Right now, I leave the dazzling New York City skyline behind me as I
crank the radio and cruise north while the GPS on my phone guides me to
Newport, Rhode Island. Far too soon, the bass-heavy song turns repetitive as
I yawn and my eyes grow heavy.
