Chapter 1


*ring ring* *ring ring*

Stirring about in her queen sized bed, hidden underneath a small village of pillows and blankets, Annmarie continues to find her phone. “Damn it. It’s only 8:30 in the morning” she said once retrieving her cell phone, but debated on staying in bed and sleeping for a little while longer until she saw that she had a voicemail. Annmarie’s interest was suddenly piqued. She punched her passcode in and unlocked the phone, pressed the call button and went straight to her voicemail. “Hi minette, call me back when you get the chance. I have something really important to ask you; actually I’m in town, but just call me, okay? Bye.” Like clockwork, Annmarie automatically knew who it was. I mean, it’s not every day a guy calls her by minette; that was her nickname and only one person in the entire world called her minette, and that was her ex-boyfriend Michael. After several moments of debating if whether she should shower, do her hair and get in her outfit for the day or stall for a few more hours in bed, Annmarie decided to finally get out of bed and take a long hot bath.

Walking around naked, Annmarie collected a few things to place on her bath board including her “Big Blue” bath bomb from Lush, her ipad mini for Netflix and of course her phone. Sinking into the tub, she just let the hot water take her over, relax her tired muscles. Flipping through her Netflix queue, she finally settled on her go-to television show that made her feel good about any tough situation, “Gilmore Girls”. Sitting back and chewing on her nail, totally zoned out, Annmarie thought about calling Michael to see what he wanted, maybe even meet up with him.

Annmarie and Michael’s relationship has always been strong, rocky but strong and full of passion. After first meeting in college, they practically spent every minute together, even with Michael asking her to join his newly formed band, Fitz and The Tantrums as co-singer and even co-wrote the widely popular song “Handclap”. It’s not that the break up ended badly, it actually ended amicably mostly because the rock star lifestyle was starting to take a toll on Annmarie and she desired to live a complete and healthy, normal life. With hair slicked back and skin turning to a prune, Annmarie mustered up the confidence to call Michael back.

“Hello?” Michael’s voice came through on the other end.

“Hey Michael, it’s Annmarie”

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
