a Trio Grows in Brooklyn

Field notes from the field trip to Brooklyn that sparked this blog:

Three for the road.  Timeless strength.  Star quality.  Pure beauty.
[Oh yeah, and there was a bridge, two cameras, some cobblestones, bricks and pizza, too.]


Update:  Posted at her request...  My e-mail to Stephanie about the day.

What a great, great day.  It will form the kickstart post for my blog. 
When I was a kid, I used to try to do things that I could be sure that I was the only one in the world doing that at that particular time.  Yesterday, there were two people who set out with that mission.  We picked up a third who, by the way, leavened lunchtime with her fake posting and two-week marriage stories. 
My one regret about Grimaldi's, Stephanie, and I let it get away...  I had a chance to spin a GOOD yarn when Monica asked me who I was.  I think I caught a glimpse of disappointment from you at that moment, but I couldn't decide whether to say I was a guy you dated, a guy who's dating your sister and about to propose, a guy who's dating your mom and about to propose, or that I was Gabe.  Dammit!  I should have gone with it.  I had my own sister convinced when she was 4 and I was 10 that I really wasn't her brother... I was just living at her house while my parents were in France.  NAILED that one!
I've distilled my favorite parts of the day down to the following:  You knowing that I'd go for the Root Beer, and what has to be the best question I've ever been asked in my lifetime, as we walked back over the Brooklyn Bridge:   "Wouldn't this be an awful place to have diarrhea?"

You really should have posted parts of your email to me along with these photos... there's still time. Go on! Pilfer your sent mail and add a few lines, even if they are about 'rhea.

Definitely should have gone with the "dating your Mom" scenario.
