If I were going to run from the law, there’s probably five places I’d consider going:
- Mooselookmeguntic, Maine
- Winchester-On-The-Severn, Maryland
- Dalworthington Gardens, Texas
- Humptulips, Washington
- Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, Wales
Not because I think I’d have loads of fun at any of these places, but because not many souls have probably ever heard of such places! And of those that have—who would consider looking for an outlaw in these towns?
And to all my Mooselookmeguntic, Winchester-On-The-Severn, Dalworthington Gardens, Humptulips, and Llanfairpwllgwyngyll readers—no offense. But I just can’t imagine the cops saying, “I bet she’s headed for Mooselookmeguntic. Let’s start the search there and if that doesn’t pan out let’s head for Humptulips because she wasn’t at any of the hot party spots in Winchester-On-The-Severn.”
If you told the cops I was probably in one of these cities, they’d probably think you were just trying to throw them off their trail—which is exactly the point! I’ll be in one of these five cities and they won’t even consider it.
So don’t blow my cover.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, think about all the places you’d run to if the law was after your hide.
