On Friday, my old friend Chris met up with me after work after a long flight from Portland, OR. He’s been staying with me this weekend and Dave and I have been showing him the sights of NYC. The last time I remember seeing him is 8th grade. He says I dropped by in 1998 on a layover, but I don’t remember it. Not surprising since my brain cells were constantly assaulted by alcohol etc back in those days. He looks great and I’m happy we still get along so well. He hit it off with Dave too, so we’ve been the complete tourist party- Park Slope, Times Square, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, East Village, Lower East Side, Union Square, the MET, San Gennaro, (but we missed the Pickle Festival!! ) Chinatown and bubble tea, and walking the Brooklyn Bridge….
He’s got today to himself and I wrote down some info about more museums, Central Park, and the Empire State Building. The weather has been delicious too. It was rainy on Friday, but the rest of the weekend was fabulous. So, you see, I’ve been distracted.
