David: "Escape"

Piña coladas, check.

Getting caught in the rain, sure.

Making love at midnight on the dunes of the cape? Damn straight.

I reread the newspaper clipping as I sat in O’Malley’s waiting for my blind date to arrive. We met through the personals. If my old lady ever found out what I was up to—

The bell on the door rang. I turned to look, and knew her instantly.

“Oh, it’s you,” said my old lady as she sat down next to me.

“Yeah, wacky, huh?” We both laughed for a moment.

She’s going to kill me in my sleep.

The word was "Escape" from The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.
