“What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?”
– Langston Hughes, A Dream Deferred
“…or does it puff up,
like a cheese wonton?”
I’ve always had dreams of running away to a big city. When I got older, I fell in love with New York and decided that I would become a New York Girl, with New York Friends, and a New York Apartment.
Not really sure how I’m doing on the first two, but yesterday this was delivered along with our Chinese food order:
You guys, it’s an authentic Chinese restaurant scrolling wall calendar! All the serious, legitimate New York apartments and offices have at least one of these lazily tacked up somewhere in the kitchen area! I’m so excited! I’m just one step closer to being a real New York Girl!
