the big sis hit the big apple at 130 yesterday morning.
despite the fact that our pedometers said we walked 9 miles in the 102 degree 'weather'--somehow the term weather sounds a little too pleasant for the oven-like conditions we powered through yesterday--i want you to know that i'm not completely heartless. i did let her sleep in. just a little bit. but she, the eternally prompt and early riser would like you all to take the time difference into consideration. it wasn't 10am. it was 7, okay?
so we assaulted the city as it assaulted us back. i have to say, it wasn't new york's proudest moment. damn was it hot?!! couldn't she have come out here when it was 70 last week?
all day we wondered, how do people not all look like a puddle of sweat, like we did? granted, some people came through to comfort us, like the man in the tkts line in front of us who had droplets of sweat hanging from his ears like earrings. but somehow, the fabulous people stayed fabulous, as reported by people.com with photos of jessica simpson, eva longoria-parker and kate hudson smiling bravely through the heat. i'm guessing the only walking they did was from the hyper air conditioned soho shops to their hyper air conditioned limos. whereas our luxe experience consisted of getting stuck on a 5 train in a tunnel under construction. people were grumpy--we were just happy to be in the a/c and entertained ourselves with amy's new fisheye lens. surely you've already noticed the fruits of our fun.
and by the end of the day i had a sunburn and amy had 18 band-aids on her feet.
