I was kidnapped once. I was standing in front of my schoolyard, and a black sedan pulls up.
And two guys get out, and they say to me, do I wanna go away with them to a land, where everybody is fairies and elves, and I can have all the comic books I want and chocolate and wax lips, you know.
I said "yes", y'know, and I got into the car with them, 'cause I figured, y'know, "What the hell”, I was home that weekend from college anyhow, y'know.
They drive me off, and they sent a ransom note to my parents.
And my father has bad reading habits, so he gets into bed at night with the ransom note, and he read half of it, y'know, and he got drowsy and fell asleep, then he lent it out, y'know.
Meanwhile they take me to New Jersey, bound and gagged, and my parents finally realize that I'm kidnapped.
They snap into action immediately: they rent out my room.
The ransom note says for my father to leave a thousand dollars in a hollow tree in New Jersey.
He has no trouble raising the thousand dollars, but he gets a hernia carrying the hollow tree.
The FBI surround the house, "Throw the kid out," they say, "give us your guns, and come out with your hands up."
The kidnappers say "We'll throw the kid out, but let us keep our guns, and get to our car."
The FBI says "Throw the kid out, we'll let you get to your car, but give us your guns."
The kidnappers say "We'll throw the kid out, but let us keep our guns - we don't have to get to our car."
The FBI says "Keep the kid."
The FBI decides to lob in teargas, but they don't have teargas, so several of the agents put on the death scene from Camellia.
Tear stricken my abductors give themselves up.
They are sentenced to fifteen years on a chain gang, and they escape, twelve of then chained together at the ankle, getting by the guards posing as an immense charm bracelet.
