Perfect Timing

Only once in my life have I lost my keys and returned home late at night and found myself in a situation where I needed to climb my apartment building’s back-alley fire escape and "break in" to my own apartment.

Only once in my life has there been a Hollywood movie, complete with cameras, floodlights, and dozens of people, being shot in my building’s back alley.

In an ideal world, they would have fallen on different nights.

  1. There was a key a the door in the mailbox but I didn’t have the key to the key.

    I ended up hanging out on the movie set for a little while and then basically crowbarring the mailbox open enough that I could slip my hand in and the get the key. Then I had to bend the mailbox back into shape.

    It was not ideal. I was returning from several weeks away and had a large bag and everything.
