looking at manhattan's sky from a taxi

























this is where my taxi driver was literally falling asleep at the wheel. I noticed when he let an opportunity to move out of the jammed up traffic go by that his eyes were closed, he may have been snoring. I would have just gotten out but I really wanted to catch my train home so I woke him up instead. when I asked him if he was sleeping he spoke some sort of gibberish and then suddenly snapped to attention. only in new york...

And in true New Yorker fashion you didn't pay him, right? you scolded him and slapped him across the face, correct? What? You didn't? Oh. That's right. You're a kind person. Lily! that's how bad accidents happen! Drivers fall asleep behind the wheel! I'm glad you're alright. And that photo: well, it means we have to go to the theater together someday. Hopefully sooner than later. hugs, mari

Very, very scary stuff. You really must take better care of yourself! If I could move at anything faster than a snail's pace, I'd have been outta that cab if I were you.
If I don't comment for a while, please know it's because we are traveling again and can't always get wi-fi for the laptop, but I'll do my best, especially if you don't get smushed in a taxi in the meantime. :~)
