Five Reasons I'm SOOO Happy to Be Back
My mission accomplished, I returned to New York late last night. I can't go into great depth about the nature of my activities in London, but you can find clues here and here. Was my mission illegal? My lips are sealed. (Sorry, Jin Ai.) But I think it's safe to say that I acted for the benefit of all humankind.
So now I'm back and even more appreciative of the wonders of New York City. For instance, where else on earth could you . . .
Enjoy a FREE haggis hot dog in celebration of Scotland Week? (Remember haggis? Maybe the ban has finally been lifted!)
Ride a subway train wallpapered with bog roll? (See, I did pick up some British lingo. Thanks, Rebecca!)
Take part in (potentially deadly) bike messenger races with names like the Headless Horseman Hunt, Battle for Brooklyn and Stupor Bowl?
See a play performed in the public restrooms near the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park?
Engage in a little sidewalk psychiatry? I feel better already!
Now back to work! There's a backlog of the bizarre!
