Well, this week I’m on the road again, hiking by myself in rural Korea. I was planning to write this one on my phone, like last week, until I walked into my hotel and saw a computer. Nice serendipity.
Just One Step Ahead
Bankruptcy is for losers, even when you owe Visa $153,221.
“We just gotta stay one step ahead,” I told my wife. “I know this place in Sweden. The rent’s peanuts.”
“Escape.” I grinned, all Prince Charming. “Just one step ahead.”
“If you take that step, you’ll do it without me.”
I called her bluff. And she . . . well, it was probably for the best. We only had enough money for one ticket anyway.
I survived, somehow, until the landlady came knocking. Peanuts are still more than nothing.
“Is a check okay?” Full-on Prince Charming.
Just stay one step ahead.
