In fuller effect!

1. New York City smells really, really bad. Sometimes it smells like baby poop, sometimes like adult poop, and sometimes like gas.

2. New Yorkers need a lesson on putting their trash in the trash can and not on the sidewalk. Tacky, just plain tacky.

3. The anti cigarette smoking campaign has not yet reached New York City.

4. Postal carriers are awesome people to ask for directions on the subway. Especially when you sidle up to them discreetly and ask them a question in a low voice.

5. I rock at navigating the subway.

6. With one small exception of almost getting on the downtown express B train to Brighton Beach. Which is in Brooklyn. or maybe Queens. But definitely not near our hotel.

7. F.A.O. Schwartz is a baaaaaad place to go when you are missing your little girls.

8. I have awesome shopping willpower, escaping F.A.O. Schwartz and the adorable little toy store on the Upper West Side with only 4 items (two of them tiny) totalling less than $60.

9. Just because you lay on the floor in the hallway outside your room (having been locked out for the 2nd time that day - stupid key cards) it DOES NOT mean that you are drunk or white trash. Just tired from laughing and walking.

10. I have never laughed so much in my life as in the span of these 70 hours. Everything, literally everything is funny between the three of us. (But I'm starting to suspect that sometimes they might, just might, be laughing AT me.)

Oh Ellen, I am SO happy you are enjoying your time in NYC with you sisters! It is nice to have a little sister time when you can steal the chance.

You are right, Laura and I LOVED the Pooh themed Halloween Costumes. What a memory you have knowing how much Laura loved Pooh growing up.

Oh, there is nothing like a good belly laugh! So glad you had a great time.
PS- if you think NYC smells bad now, try visiting in the heat of August. Whew!
