You Are a Real NY’er When:
you need to get somewhere and you can close your eyes and the subway map just appears to your mind.
Scene Title: Peanut Butter Jelly Time
I honestly didn’t have cash for the beggar on the corner hitting me up for money.
But as I walked away, I realized I had a PB&J sandwich in my bag. Figuring food is just as good as money…..
Me: “Hey I just happen to have a PB&J sandwich- here you go”
Beggar: (holding up his hand) “Hoooold up just a minute… (Thoughtful pause) What kind of jelly?”
Me: (Caught off guard)”Uh… Apricot”
Beggar: “You kidding me lady? Apricot?!? Who the hell makes a PB&J sandwich with Apricot jelly?? You TOO GOOD for GRAPE?”
Note to self: Not all PB&J sandwiches are legal tender in NYC…
