City Jargon & Thin CrustThursday, January 29, 2009
When one is in the city that never sleeps it is important to pay close attention to the ins and outs of local lingo. As an outsider you will already stick out like a sore thumb due to your puzzled expressions, public eye contact, mouths aghast and constant photo ops. It is important to know that without total compliance you might run the risk of complete native annihilation. When in Roma do as the Romans do but when in New York conform or get out. :)
Yesterday as Blake and I were on our way home from the city we over heard a fellow use the word "CONVERSATE" in a dialogue with a friend. I looked at Blake with a puzzled expression but he, never one to miss a beat smiled and proceeded to use the new found word in a sentence. It is important to know that the fellow also used the word "REMIX" and his sentence went a little something like this. " WE NEED TO CONVERSATE, I WANT TO GET UP ON THAT REMIX. "
But by far the most important thing to remember, weather your are a veteran New Yorker or just a tourist. Make sure to fill up on cheap NYC Thin crust pizza and garlic Knots. Nothing hits the spot better than a good late night snack of Greasy Cheese, Buttery Garlic and Orange Fanta. Plus with all the walking you'll have no need to worry about the effects it will have on your body!
HERE'S TO MY NEW LOVE... YUMMY!!
