|OK, I lied a little that
day.... Well maybe a lot!
Lie #1 I told Nancy that I was meeting my friend DJ from Boston in Worcester and we were going to head down to the computer fair in Warwick.
Truth I went to New York City, to pay off and pick up the ring that we had selected in December .
Both DJ and I are geeky enough that this sounded like something we'd do. Given where he lives, I live, the location of the fair and the fact that Nancy lived in Springfield, it sounded believable enough. It also bought me the time I needed to sneak into the City.
Lie #2: DJ was going to NYC after the fair
Truth I never picked DJ and I never went to the fair. The fair in Warwick is about the only thing that was real. This is to setup for item #3
Lie #3 DJ lost his wallet and is waiting for us on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building
Truth He was at home in the Boston area, but made a phone call to my answering machine and sounded really desperate.
