Let’s not go there

I got hopelessly lost in Florence. I was going to see David and say hello to his infamous genitals and had carefully mapped out a route from my hotel to the Accademia where he hangs out. I woke up at 6am, showered, walked to the end of my block and grabbed a cappuccino from this ornery Italian coffeeshop owner who thought my ordering a Caffe Americano was an insult to all of Italy. A brioche cioccolato and two cigarettes later, having looked at my map for the 90th time since waking up, I soldiered on, aiming to be at the Accademia by 11. By 1:30pm, I’d come upon this alley 4 times and knew I just had to admit defeat. I stood at this corner for some time, smiling like a lunatic. I hear you, Big Guy. There are just some places and some people we’re not meant to find, no matter how well we plan for it or how hard we try.
