237/366 – NYC Bound

Preface: this one is for Reggie, who joined me on one of my summer work trips and finally visited New York City for the first time.

What will it be like?

His questions never cease, and I’m running out of different ways to answer him. Busy, I’ve already said. Frantic and chaotic.

It’s noisy and smelly and hot and humid and sticky, so wear breathable clothes and comfortable shoes. And the people walking down the sidewalk don’t give two shits about you, so keep with the pace and stay out of their way and you’ll be fine.

I’m realizing that my warnings and tips are starting to overwhelm him. So I stop, take a quick breath, and tell him the truth.

What will it be like? Well, it is going to be crazy and busy and frantic and chaos, but it’s also all kinds of beautiful and magical. And you’re going to love it.
