When Tiffany emailed me and asked me if I was going to be in NY for the weekend of the 4th, I had to tell my cousin I was sorry but I had to cancel our plans because Miss Tiffany was going to be in NYC that weekend. Mari and I were psyched and we planned a walking tour of lower Manhattan.
Being a blogger is really quite wonderful. I share so much of my soul here and read so much about everyone else’s blog that I feel like I know so many of you and in truth, haven’t even heard your voices! When I met up with Tiffany at her hotel in Times Square we hugged and kissed like we were long lost buddies reuniting after a long time apart. Only, we weren’t. We were meeting for the first time. It was much like that when i met Mari for the first time. We spent so much time emailing, texting, and blogging that when we met for the first time (a trip to the gym together) it wasn’t weird at all sweating on each other at the gym! Why can’t DATING be this easy???
Once Mari arrived (damn trains!) we walked to the emptiest Starbucks we could find in Times Square and mapped out our day. In true blogger fashion we all had our cellphones and coffees out chitchatting about our plans.
At this point Tiff gave me and mari the biggest shock of our lives. We walked by a hot dog stand and tiff said “Um, what’s a Knish?” and Mari and I stopped dead in our tracks and in unison said WHAT??. Without hesitation mari ordered a Knish with mustard STAT for tiff.
