Today I came downstairs, absolutely certain that my brain was going to implode. I had misplaced my passport, and today I am leaving the country.

Up and down the newly carpeted stairs, the dull thudding of my feet and my heartbeat in my ears; unconcealed curses aimed at no one began my day.

I considered crying — but what good would that do? Emotionalism isn\’t really the answer to such a practical problem, and besides, breaking down in a mess of snot and mascara never solved any problems.

It had fallen down behind my jewelry box drawer. How simple.

    Oh, man, Erin, did you hear what happened with Kyle? Alex pointed out a few days before they were going to Europe that Kyle’s passport had expired! They had to drive to New York City and pay mucho moneys to get one in time. It was crazy.
