Everyday Life in New York City

       The Metropolitan Diary of the New York Times continues to offer humorous real-life stories and experiences of natives and visitors to New York Citythat often show the human side of New Yorkers.  When I read most of them, I can’t help but laugh, sometimes very loudly and sometimes, depending on my surroundings, attracting a little too much attention.  Others just make me feel good about being a New Yorker.  A recent edition includes panic in a terminal, an unusual conversation about Katz’s Deli, and an equally unusual conversation on the C Train.  So, try it for therapy, stress relief, or to assure yourself that there still is a good side to people – just don’t laugh or cry too loudly:  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/13/nyregion/metropolitan-diary-readers-tales-of-new-york-city.html?_r=1&ref=metropolitandiary.

    The story re the newly arrived Russian immigrant reminded me of an experience I had while living in NY. After breaking my ankle, the company I worked for hired a limo service for my commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan and back daily. One of my drivers was from Israel. I had difficulty understanding him so I did most of the talking. I mentioned I had recently returned from my dream trip to Europe. He made a comment and, not quite understanding him, just replied “yes.” I learned later he asked if I had been to Israel, which I had not. Only after we became engaged did I “fess up.” We will be married 42 years in December.
