New York's Finest

I went to New York on the weekend because there was a menu on a wall that I wanted to read. The print was so tiny that my bee-dy little eyes couldn't get it all and so I called on New York's finest and they soon made everything better.

Pictured is said menu, one Beckeye, one Coaster Punchman, one Chelene and one Dale. Not pictured is one poor George assisting one poor Jessica with camera duties.


After we figured out what the menu said, we left. Okay, we had brunch and then left.

As always, it's a treat to meet new friends (hi Beckeye) and to reconnect with old great people you can never get enough of (hi Coaster Punchman, Chelene, and poor George).

My friend Jessica had never been to the Big Apple and so we managed to hit a lot of the sights, took in some great shows, ate like Americans and fiercely haggled with the Merchants of Menace along Canal Street, in all, an excellent trip.

See you next time I can't read something lovely bloggy people.

I'll bet your friend Jessica has never been to the Buckeye State either. When can we show you the sights here?

That's the main problem with New York: too many effete, liberal, readers. Why can't all restaurants be more accessible to the common folk, like McDonald's, and just have pictures of the food?

Here's the problem with that comment: too, many, unnecessary, commas.

Beth said...

Interesting. I've also traveled to other cities to check out a menu. Did you like the font?

"I'm still mad that I wasn't there for the Write Procrastinator follies."

Well, maybe you shouldn't have been (it begins with a "p" and it ends with a "g")...
















...that's right, you shouldn't have "pogoing" with the nextdoor neighbors. Slamdancing and moshing is so unbecoming of you, Dale.

Dale, ya wouldn't be needin' glasses or anything?

Winter said...

I love that most of your pictures are the back of your head.

Jill said...

Dale and something productive??DAle and something nice?? This is so wrong!!

chelene said...

I feel like a little person when I'm standing between you and CP, Dale.

Dale said...

An interesting proposition. Will you dare call me Mrs. Kravitz in person Flannery? I'm still laughing.

As long as the photos of the food are from behind, I'm all for it Pistols. I liked the commas of the first comment but can't support their use in the second.

The font wasn't as good as the food Beth.

Dear Write Procrastinator,

You know how comments show up in your email? Only the top half of yours did and I hadn't checked my actual blog.

All day, I wandered around trying to figure out what you meant by 'begins with a "p" and it ends with a "g".

Being retarded is also unbecoming in me. Please forgive me for I know not what I do.

Yours retardedly,

Dale

No Gifted Typist, just a holiday now and then.

Winter, I do it for the kids, so they won't wake up screaming at my grinning fool face.

If puzzling you is wrong, I don't want to be right Jill.

We were probably both just wearing lifts Chelene.

I used to be able to see itty bitty letters really well. Now I have to back up a bit. Aging is just as fun as I always imagined it would be.

Flannery Alden said...

Certainly, Dale; you bring out the daredevil in me.

Writeprocrastinator said...

In case someone thinks that I'm telling Dale to perform an unnatural act, "procrastinating" begins with a...

"We were probably both just wearing lifts Chelene."

Chelene is right, you two are giants.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Funny, I was just planning to travel to Regina to read a stop sign. Who wants to meet me there for lunch?

BeckEye said...

What you don't know is that Chelene, Coaster and I had already conspired to tell you that everything on the menu only cost $5. Ha ha, sucker!!

Thank you for not posting the frontal shots because I look like a turd in them. A slightly hungover, albino turd, but a turd nonetheless.

Winter said...

Dale that's why I wear makeup. For the kids.

Dale said...

Then you must come next time and be read to Tenacious S.

I'll have to think of a comeback daredevil Flannery.

We're gentle giants WP, no fear required.

I'd love to Barbara, can you swing by and pick me up though?

What I didn't tell you Beckeye was that they brought the wrong bill and it was only $5! And you didn't look at all like an albino or any other kind of turd. Silly goose.

It's like Christmas for everyone when we're around Winter.

I am completely offended that I wasn't invited. I rarely leave the house, but still.

Dale said...

It was discussed Wonderturtle that you should have been there. Next time?

Coaster Punchman said...

I also am offended at the absence of Wonderturtle, every day.

And Chelene, there are no little people, only little ________ (isn't there some old saying like that? Can't remember what the little things are that actually exist.)

Dale said...

There's a reason she stays in her shell CP, it's because of our insensitivity.

Little Women? Little Men? Little Midgets? Rich Little?

wonderturtle said...

That's "there are no small parts, only small actors," which I don't think would be terribly comforting in this scenario.

Next time, I plan to be there AND be square.

Dale said...

Meet you in the square then Wonderturtle!
