It was a late, Wednesday night and I was playing hide and seek tag with my seven little cousins by
my building. It was late in the game when I realized a key point, I had to use the bathroom. I ran
into the open, and throwing all caution to wind I ran inside to an open condo, stomped down the hall
to the bathroom and shut the door behind me. I went to the bathroom with almost no problems, until
I heard a comically deep voice from down the hall,
"Diana, is that you?" He said.
That's about the time I realized, this was NOT my apartment. I knew what I had to do, pretend I
was Diana and just go along with this thing for a while. Well, at least that was my original plan, then
I started thinking, actually thinking this time. I realized that I could probably make it to the door in
a few seconds flat if I didn't make to much noise. So I quietly unlocked the door and attempted to
open the door, unfortunately for me, the door was jammed, and low and behold, I was locked in. I
thought about calling the guy to help me get unstuck, but I was trying to leave with as much dignity
as I could muster at that point. Just then, as I was frantically jiggling the door knob, I heard footsteps
coming down the hall to were I was and then I heard the voice for the second time that day.
"Who the **** is in there?" The guy basically screamed.
"Umm, hi," I said, really trying to keep my cool, and of course, I was not. "My name's Elle, I accidentally
walked into your apartment instead of mine, and now the door's jammed, do you think you could help me out?"
The guy agreed, but told me to be more careful in the future, I decided to keep quiet, and just get out of
that stupid bathroom.
That's when my luck changed, I'm not sure when or why, but at some point, I looked out their window, which
didn't have a screen, don't worry, I was on the first floor. So, I grabbed the top edge of the window and
lifted myself out. I guess that day just refused to go my way, because I managed to land smack-dab in the
middle of a bush.
When I finally pulled myself out of the bush, I was dirty, embarrassed, and kind of lost, but at least I was out. After that episode, I am not looking forward to going outside again.

THIS STORY IS TRUE. SOME NAMES, "DIANA" HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR PRIVACY REASONS, AND MY OWN PERSONAL REASONS TOO. SOME DIALOG IS NOT EXACT, AND THE MOOD WAS "SLIGHTLY" MORE PANICKED, BUT WHATEVER! THANKS FOR READING AND MAKE SURE TO COMMENT!
