Me and some of my kinfolk are leaving these hills for a few days and heading down to NYC.
I am little worried that they won't let me onto Manhattan island. Do they still have those style police posted on the bridges and in the tunnels? I was really concerned about that kind of thing during high school and college years growing up as I did in darkest Schenectady. I remember a kid from Long Island paying me the ultimate compliment when I was 20. He found out that I was from upstate: "Really?" he said. "I thought you were from the City." Well, I was trying harder in those years.
Thankfully, it is too cold for the turnip truck so we have bought train tickets. I'll let you know how it goes.
