Greetings from New York City
Finally, yes, after sorting through 458 New Yorker cartoons, I found two which related to my day!
I left Albany after lunch and had a teeth-grinding rube-in-the-city experience getting here.
How astounded,indeed, I was that pedestrians flow with insouciance right in front of ongoing traffic! How tired I was after toting a rug uptown to Melina's apartment! How can Manhattanites possibly enjoy shopping as much as they do, knowing that everything they buy must be humped home?
How dismayed I was to discover, when I arrived, that the super had turned off the water to the whole apartment building and I had to leave the premises to find a place to pee! When I got back, I noticed Melina's $29 dry-cleaning bill on the table. I have never had a dry-cleaning bill in my life.
My car has been sucked into the bowels of an establishment like the one pictured here and I won't see it again until I leave. If then.
