We come to New York fairly regularly and although I’m sure we play the role of the hardened New Yorkers quite well, we enjoy doing touristy things too.
Standing in the middle of the sidewalk holding up my iPhone to gauge which way is west is something all New Yorkers do, right?
Today we went to The Metropolitan Museum, or “The Met” for us New Yorker folks. For some reason, Matt had never been there, and it had been years since I was there, so we decided to spend the day looking at old stuff. (Not to be confused with looking at old junk. That would be a horse of a different color and a very different afternoon.)
As we walked through the museum, my husband’s brilliance shined through once again in the comments he made. He didn’t realize I was keeping track of his musings, but he never does because I’m super stealthy that way.
He may, however, think I have a bladder control issue because I’m always going to the restroom so I can update my notes in private.
Do you see what I do for you? Do you see the kind of concern I cause my husband just so you can have a chuckle? I hope you enjoy this. You better.
Lisa: “Aw, that statue’s wiener fell off.”
Matt: “You’ll have that every now and again.”

4. Gun Enthusiast

Lisa: “Will you take a picture of me on the Met steps in my Blaire Waldorff headband so I can totally channel her?”
Matt: “YOU HAVE A LAW DEGREE! WHY DO YOU WATCH GOSSIP GIRL?”
It was a fun afternoon at the Met, my friends. Of course, it was made far more entertaining by my husband and his random comments, but that’s the case with most things, isn’t it?
