Like a Kid Again
Somedays you just need a pick me up. Today is one of those days. So I decided on the way to an appointment to be a kid again and experience one of the great treasures of NYC. FAO Schwarz. For the uninitiated, the store opens at 10AM and if you get there at 9:55, you can have the grand red carpet welcoming. A trumpeter plays, the soldiers salute, the red carpet is rolled out, and the first customers are greeted by rounds of applause by the employees.
So, my tip for today is when you need an escape, just be a kid again and go play on that big piano, go play with the big stuffed animals, and be treated by a queen if only for 5 minutes.
