Posts Tagged ‘Daily Life in Manhattan’

It’s Monday. I woke up this morning with a crappy head cold generally feeling a little under the weather. It is still freezing here in the city, even if the the sun is shining brightly. And there are a million (at least) things to do on my “to do” list. On the positive side, Ron is back from a ten day trip and the household is back to normal. After a quick tea with the ladies, I headed down to Trader Joe’s to grab a few items. My mind was a bit foggy and I was daydreaming a bit, trying to think of what I would write a post on this morning. And then I saw this:

Alligators in the NYC sewers?!

Just another day in the city 😉

Right out front of the Trader Joe’s on W. 72nd street is where this advertising display is set up. If you walk by too quickly you might miss it, thinking that it is just another detour due to sidewalk construction. Hilarious.

And then it got me thinking. There is always something going on in NYC. No matter how mundane an errand you are running you are bound to find something interesting to look at or experience. You never know what you will wake up to. This really is part of the allure of this city. Walking down the street is always entertaining. No wonder I am easily distracted by shiny objects, there is always something to tantalize the senses.

I wasn’t the only one who stopped to admire the display, a few other non-jaded types where also taking pics. One guy even commented that it had made his Monday morning. Mission accomplished. After all, we all need something to talk about besides the weather, don’t we?

Have a great day!
