the best thing about living in new york (a test)

Multiple-choice. Stay within the bubble and use only a #2 pencil.

(a) You can go anywhere for $2. (Yes, this means Central Park and Coney Island. It also means the South Bronx.)
(b) Not having to own anything that says "Big Apple" on it or involves the words "New York" and a heart-shaped symbol.
(c) Finally, finally, when you're in a foreign country where they speak a foreign language simply being able to smile and nod when someone says: "Amrika? Noo Yawrk?" And then being able to simply walk away: no muss, no fuss, no guilt and no explanations.
(d) Our crazy people are both crazier and louder than your crazy people.

The best thing about living in New York is walking on the glittery sidewalk on the north side of Thomas Street between Broadway and Church. And biking home drunk late on a summer night. And not being in law school. Oh wait...

D is definitely true on my block. And Mandy, you were doing so well there for a minute (as I often do) until you remembered you were in law school. Sometimes it just all comes crashing down, don't it?

C, definitely. Granted I may not be 100% from New York, but it's a very handy place to have lived now that I'm in a foreign country. All I have to say is "New York" and that encompasses all of the following:
1) I'm not one of those Bush-supporting idiots.
2) I have eaten sushi and discussed art
3) crowds and crazy people don't faze me, so don't even try.
It's really very handy, I recommend it for all travelers if you can pull it off. -Rebecca
