A friend tells me she's being transferred to Cincinnati. She tells me why, but her explanation may as well have been delivered by an adult in a "Peanuts" cartoon for all I could understand. I know it's not a good thing, though, because she's frowning, so I frown too.

"Well, it's not like I wanted to live in New York forever anyway," she says, holding my gaze in the locker room mirror, and I know she's trying to convince herself she doesn't want to scream.

"Yeah, I get sick of New York sometimes too," I say, not even convincing myself.
