>After I left Starbucks, some things happened that I just had to come on here and relate. First a little background.

My nail salon is on the corner of Madison Ave. and 36th St. Macy’s is in Herald Square which is at the corner of 34th St. and 7th Ave. Macy’s is having a Lancome giveaway. Since the kids were going to a movie and I was so close to Macy’s already, I decided to go there and get some makeup and get the free gift. As I was walking down 34th St to 7th Ave, this woman and her friend were behind me and she was talking really loud, “You know how if your bigger in the bust your clothes will go . . . ” I was trying to not listen, at the same time I was trying to so I could blog about it, but her voice was very annoying. Somehow they got ahead of me, and I kept trying to get in front of them to get away from them but I couldn’t, I didn’t want to slow down cause I really wanted to get to Macy’s. When we got to Herald Square she started in on, ‘This is Herald Square where the Macy’s Day Parade is.” Crossing the street I tried to go around them again but couldn’t, there were too many people. Then she says, “You know those plastic sippy cups? I like to fill them with wine for when I go to the park with the kids . . .” That’s when I ran. Fortunately they were not going to Macy’s.

After I left Macy’s I walked up 7th Avenue to go to GCT to catch the train home. When I got to 42nd Street. I saw Mickie and Minnie Mouse, walking side by side carrying these red felt bags. Mickie had one of those kids backpacks on that looks like a stuffed animal. Fortunately they did not look at me so I didn’t scream and call them pedophiles. That’s a long story for another time, or never. Then up at the corner was Elmo, he was taller then me, I walked behind him where he couldn’t see me. I have an unreasonable fear of stuffed animals that are bigger then me and walk.
