I was given so many great pre-birthday gifts today.
1. a run through central park complete with kevin bacon spotting
2. sneezed on the subway and received dirty looks from people who i'm certain thought i had swine flu (hilarious)
3. sunny afternoon
4. good job karma
5. shopping trip for birthday dress and other goodies
I love the day after a long rainstorm. New Yorkers start to emerge from their musty hideouts and squint, bleary-eyed into the sun. Children run, old men embrace, people sit on the stoops, street food carts make the air smell like kabobs and spices. I just love this city.
