I played host today and yesterday to a childhood friend of my brother’s and his wife who are passing through NYC. Here’s the conversation we had while riding the subway and looking at the map this afternoon:
Friend: “Where’s Madison Square Garden?”
Me: “Over here by Penn Station.”
Friend: “Where’s NYU?”
Me: “There, in the Village.”
Friend: “Where’s Mood?”
Me: “… ???????????????!!!!!!!!!!”
This guy races bikes, drives fast, plays hockey, and downhill skis faster than I’m willing to drive my car (seriously… I’d tell you how fast, but it would just make your palms sweat unnecessarily), but his favorite show is Project Runway! He and his wife are hoping to meet Swatch, the Mood dog, next time they’re in town. Amazing.
Doug and Peggy would like you to know that they don’t think Swatch is all that cute.
