Fled the scene as soon as I politely could. In fact, I left before my hostess awoke that morning, leaving a completely insincere note (I think the truth is overrated. Imagine the chaos that would ensue if we all told the truth!). Bundled the dog into the car and hit the road. Though Iím no leadfoot, I had to stop myself from speeding down the rainy highway. We were so glad to be home. We went to bed early and slept a full twelve hours, a change from the nightmares. I havenít been so tired since my mother was dying.
