i can never get away

while on vacation with the family, i tried to slip out the door with my luggage in the middle of the night. the tv was running some cartoon, which is funny enough in itself because we are all adults, but i dared not shut it off as i sneaked toward freedom. why was i creeping away? outside, halfway across the university parking lot, my father marched toward me in full suit and trenchcoat. he was yelling something about money and i hollered back like a frustrated teenager. i sat on the baggage (!), felt around for our checkbook, and flung it at him. i felt so stymied. clearly i can never get away from school or the family.
