Because this 3-day, President’s Day, weekend was just a tease, I decided to take today off as well from work.
[One day off and I find out single (and/or not so single) men in NY are being auctioned off… (see Michael’s post below for more details, ladies…) I forget how much you can miss in one day in NY.]
Meanwhile, wanting to see how the other half of the City lives, I wake up well after Noon today as opposed to my usual 7:30 am routine. Turned on my computer, but didn’t want to go near it as I didn’t have to. (This is how you miss out on things happening in your world.)
Had 2 cups of coffee leisurely, instead of inhaling it 5 minutes before running out the door – something I would do on a normal work day. Then, I decided to take a shower at 1 pm, the time most work people are picking up lunch to bring back to their desks. I know only because I’ve become one of those scary lunch types myself.
After a 35-minute shower, I made lunch and watched daytime TV. Sammie and Carrie on Days of Our Lives are still fighting over Austin. Lily is pregnant with Holden’s child (maybe?) on As the World Turns.
Bored with that, as I’ve seen it like 10 years ago, I decided to go to Macy’s and visit the makeup counter. (It’s free gift time at Estee Lauder!)
Shopping during the workday is whole new experience! No lines, no pushy customers, and what you need is actually in stock! And this was all at the H&M store in Herald’s Square.
I’m in love with this whole non 9-5 way of life. On the Manhattan-bound L train today, I looked around and realized I must not be the only one.
But, party’s over, it’s back to work tomorrow. The weekend’s 3 more days away, but then again who’s counting (besides me)?
