Quick NYC Tale

It's Thursday, 2:53 p.m. I just got back from picking up turkey sandwiches at the JY deli with Jenn.

While we were in there, waiting for Jenny (no relation) to make our sandwiches, we strolled around the store, checking out the latest in tomato packaging and looking at funky Asian foods.

There was a guy in there buying something, a tall, older dude with bushy white hair and beard. He looked kind of straggly.

He suddenly moved to the door and peered out, then came back to the counter.

"Just checking on my horse" he said to the woman behind the counter.

I thought he was making a joke, but when we left with our sandwiches, sure enough, a horse and carriage was parked out front. The horse's big head was nuzzling a bicycle that was chained to a parking meter next to it.

The guy was a carriage driver in Central Park.
