When is a Mistake not a Mistake?
When it’s premeditated.
Sorry, darling. But if you bought the bus ticket several days in advance of running away, it’s not a simple mistake. You faked your disappearance. You brought an entire town to a standstill. That speed trap on Peachtree Industrial didn’t yield nearly the amount of revenue it would have had they not been out looking for you.
You owe us an explanation. Your fiance says it’s a private, personal matter. That was the case before you became a national headline. You are now a public person.
I’m afraid that the next time someone goes missing – and that someone is in serious trouble, people will remember you and not be so giving of their time. And something bad will happen.
