Always Be Packing
every year for the past 6 years, i’ve traveled home to new york for columbus day weekend. this year is no different, and it seems the older i get, the more i have bringing me back. friday-sunday is all i have (which reminds me - take a half day on friday!) to see a handful of best friends, a new baby i’ve yet to meet, and my mom. 10/9 is a good friends birthday as is 10/11 and right in the middle? my momma’s birthday. so far everyone who i’m trying to see has told me “let’s play it by ear” which, i’ve got to be honest… is infuriating. but we can’t tell them that, cause it’s their birthday or baby or whatever. so here i am, playing it by 3 people’s ears, and waiting to hear something….
fri pm - chicken parm on my mother’s couch in my underwear
sat daytime - playing it by ear
sat night - playing it by ear
sun daytime - playing it by ear
sun night - bus home
