Grandma in New York

Grandma had a good time in New York City, but I think that she was a little scared being here. Our balcony has glass panels, and one of them has been cracked since we moved in, and she asked if it was from a gun shot. She also asked if there were a lot of suicides...I don't know if she asked because we had a balcony for people to jump off of or because New York is so awful. And then the last night she was here Heinz brought home a pizza, and she asked if anyone tried to take it from him! That doesn't happen in New York, unless you have delicious delicious cupcakes from Magnolia bakery (now I always ask for a bag so they can't see the box).

I took Grandma to see The Drowsy Chaperone. It was hard to find a show without pop culture references or anything offendable. I also took her to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to Chinatown for dim sum, to the St. Regis for high tea (we ate almost everything, as you can tell from our plates), Tiffany's (Grandma said twice, loudly, "They don't have to know we don't have any money to spend!"), and FAO Schwartz. Grandma decided that she wanted to ride the subway to the airport to save money. She said that she "should have taken a nerve pill." Even while sitting down, she was hanging on for dear life. I think Grandma had a good time.

Thanks, that's sweet! But Grandma didn't like my hair color. Huh?! I pay a lot for this color.
