The day started at 1:00am with the sound of our motel room door being jiggled and the beep of a failed key card. Someone was trying to get into our room. I think we were all too tired to be scared, but it did startle us awake. I looked out the peep hole and saw the two men who were obviously just very confused (or drunk) and thought that this was …
