Bagel, one. Purchased from a bagel shop in what I have affectionately come to refer as "my old neighborhood," given that I stayed in a hotel there for a week back in January. Got lost on the way to find it, walked ten blocks out of my way, wished I hadn't just thrown a sweater on over my pajamas and had maybe also included some supportive undergarments or something.
Weird hippie sandwich, one. Purchased because I'd been thinking about it since January, trying to decide if I'd liked it or not the first time I had it. Upon eating it for a second time, decided I did indeed like it. Had sort of a love/hate thing going on with the pea shoots, but ultimately settled on "love." Only took me four months and two tastings to conclude.
Shake Shack meal, comprising cheeseburger, crinkle cut fries, chocolate shake: Suggested for dinner as a kind and selfless gesture so that father might decide for himself whether Shake Shack could hold a candle to In-N-Out. Should really be given a medal for this selflessness. Such selfless, selfless selflessness. Am Gandhi, basically.
Hot apple cider, cup of: Purchased at Union Square Greenmarket, also known as new favorite place. Helped ease the fresh trauma of taxi driver who decided to "translate" each line of the music he was blasting for us in his cab. Translation of music would have been fine if music had, say, included lyrics in a different language. But music was purely instrumental. Taxi driver "translated" every bar of it for us all the same. Music was having some pretty deep feelings, turns out.
Apple cider donut, embarrassing amount of: Went so well with hot apple cider. Could not resist.
Ginger molasses cookie, one: Went so well with apple cider donut. Could not resist.
Junior's Cheesecake, half of: Alright, this is getting embarrassing.
Bratwurst and sauerkraut: Ordered at Prime Meats in Brooklyn from woman dressed in garment that was either from her Amish grandmother's wardrobe or from American Apparel. (Tough to say.) Washed down with cocktail made by suspendered bartender, not that we should hold that against him.
Apple, honeycrisp: Finally. Something with a caloric count not in the quadruple digits.
