Summary: Allison doesn’t know how she got here. She doesn’t know how she became this person, this person who’s life feels like a job with no off hours, who doesn’t have a single friend she can rely on that doesn’t live too many miles away. She doesn’t know when she stopped having anyone to pretend to be busy for, doesn’t remember the last movie she watched or the last book she read for pleasure. She doesn’t remember how it got this far, can’t imagine what pushed her to be this way. Maybe nothing did.
