  1. i would often drive into boston to meet my husband. my two young children were always in the car giving me helpful directions on which way to turn. i usually managed to find a parking garage and then we would share a nice lunch with dad. but the parking garages always seemed to spit you out in a direction opposite of where you entered. i always managed to lose my sense of direction at that point, and would just begin navigating through the series of one ways and narrow streets. each time, i would eventually end up in chinatown … which was my saving grace as i knew where the ramps were at that point to get back on the highway to drive home. so … we were often lost, but always found ourselves … with a little help from chinatown.

  4. Shaky from eating only goldfish, guzzling starbucks double shots, and chain smoking I was lost in East Harlem at 1 a.m. After running red lights, ending up in Brooklyn for awhile, alternating crying and laughing hysterically a lovely cab driver saved me by allowing me to use his phone and call my friend to come and get me. This is my tribute to cell phones and why I bought one shortly after.

  5. One night in Wyoming, I lost my friends after a bonfire. It was a clear night, and I thought I wouldn’t be scared heading home. Wrong! I tried to avoid thinking about coyotes, Scary Hatchet Man (a recurring figment of my paranoid imagination), and bears; instead, I awoke my inner girl scout, and looked for a flashlight. Just ahead, I spotted Ernie, the bald-headed lifeguard. Moonlight shone atop his sunburned cranium like an anthropomorphized Atomic Fireball candy. I followed it down the sage brush hills, safely back to the comfort of my Mormon-filled bunk, where I drank a warm soda in celebration. duncanpittman@gmail.com

  7. I was lost in Walt Disney World once. I was a young child and don't remember much about it. I remember looking up at a man who I thought was my father. He wasn't. I couldn't find any of my family members, so I panicked and started crying. A nice woman saw me and asked what was wrong. I told her I couldn't find my family. She said she would help. Around this time, my family realized they were one child short and came back to look for me. We were reunited and I was very happy. Rachael environut80@yahoo.com
