"What do you mean, you're lost? The salon is rightbymyhouse!"
"Honey, I don't know Aurora at all. Except the mall. I think I know where that is."
"What street are you on?"
"What do you see?"
"Mom! Is there a nursery on your left?"
Looking left, seeing scraggly trees, doubting it's a nursery.
"Not so much."
"Mom! The salon is minutes from my house."
"What direction are you traveling in?"
Realizing that the compass has been left at home (and all is lost): "I'm not sure. Look, I've already called them and said we should reschedule. The stupid iPhone told me where the salon was and it lied! And it took me twice as long to get here. Where did all this traffic come from? Is everyone getting a pedi today?"
"Mom! Focus. What street are you crossing now?"
"No sign on that one."
Hyperventilating coming from phone.
"That one is Liberty Street. That's where Dad worked, right?"
"The next street should be New York. Turn right."
"Turning. How's your day been?"
"Mom! I'm on a horse right now and shouldn't even be on the phone!"
"I see it! Next to Starbucks."
"Rightbymyhouse, like I said."
This episode of Lost in Aurora brought to you by me and the Soleil Salon and Day Spa of Aurora, which is on New York Street. Trust me on this.
