I have no patience for NYU undergrads and their boring stories about boring theme parties. Particularly when they shout these stories so everyone on the subway must listen. It’s not that I hate loud talkers the same way I hate all slow walkers, all I ask is that loud talkers just restrict their talking only to genuinely interesting things.
An addendum to my earlier comic on NYC pedestrians. I found myself doing this at one point this weekend. Valuable moments of my life wasted while some d-bag didn’t use his turn signal.
3 things only NYC pedestrians do. Regarding #1, I saw a woman actually do this once at 34th & 8th Ave., by the Tick Tock Diner. She got out of her Range Rover (her husband was in the driver’s seat), and proceeded to direct traffic in an attempt to clear up total gridlock.
So, I know what you’ve all been wondering since 10/31: “Maggie, you had ALL these stellar ideas, how did you possibly choose just one costume?” Well, friends, when you wait until 7pm on Halloween to actually purchase the makings of a costume, it’s pretty slim pickings for those of us not interested in being sexy veterinarians, etc. So I borrowed an idea from last week’s SNL episode. Most people got it (deviled egg), with the exception of two astute gentlemen on whom pun was lost.
Smart guy #1: (walking by on the sidewalk on Amsterdam by 73 St., he picked up on my devil horns and pitchfork, clearly missing the 4’ tall piece of poster board strapped to my person) Oh I’ve been very bad.
Smart guy #2: (this guy’s GF thought my costume was hilarious, he was… not so observant?) So what are you? Satan’s eggs?*
*To be fair, I did find a recipe for this on Food.com.
