How NOT to Get Lost

Dear Aunt Edith,

Next year in seventh grade, we are going to New York City. I’m afraid I’m going to get lost and then I’ll have to live there forever and then I’ll live in the sewers and then I’ll eat my rats, but I’ll eat all the rest so then I’ll have to eat…”

Dear EatingRats4312,

I don’t think that will happen. But, just to be safe, here’s how to prevent eating rats in New York subway stations:

Buddy System

Stick with your friends, preferably one with a cel phone, and also stick with your chaperones. Try to stay toward the middle of your crowd, neither drifting behind nor jumping to the front.

If You Are Lost

STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE STAY WHERE YOU ARE

SOMEONE WILL COME BACK AND FIND YOU!

Use your phone, NOT A STRANGER’S! Talk to no one unless you personally know them. Sit down. Call out your chaperone’s name. THEY WILL FIND YOU; DO NOT FIND THEM!

Back when I was a girl, I went to New York City. It was fun. To make sure we didn’t get lost, they tied ropes around us and linked us together. I don’t know if they still do that. Probably.

With Love,

Aunt Edith
