missing person

Dear kind readers especially men: Rehearse a missing person’s report, and imagine it going like this: Sincerely, Tom Doody. MAN: my wife/girlfriend is missing POLICE: did you ¿Kill? her. This rehearsal is inspired by the white-girl-missing USA case and the fifty minutes Hana and I were separated in Lecce Puglia Italy. Multiple people in the media have offered advice about lover’s quarrels telling couples to separate, but there’s risk. For a month in Italy Hana and I have been together with the exception of the fifty minutes when Hana lost track of time shopping. Separation and a missing-person’s report in a foreign country is tragic even if it’s brief, and devastating if it’s sustained.
