O is for Old
Whew! I’ve gotta be honest, I’m beat but know I made a commitment to participate in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge (more so to myself) so here I am. I began this post at 9:45 p.m. and although I’m ready to crawl into bed, I’m thinking of something witty to say related to the letter “O.”
After hitting the street at 6 a.m. today and rolling in around 9 p.m., the only thing I could think of was, “Am I too old for this?”
“This” is in reference to my job in tourism public relations. Granted, every day isn’t like this week in New York City, although every day is something different. I’m mentally drained, my dogs are barking and my comfy hotel bed is calling my name.
In addition to attending today’s function and following up on office work I…
Thought It’d Be A Great Idea to Show Up at the Good Morning America Set at 6:45 a.m.
Got to See Julie Louis-Dreyfus (She was promoting VEEP – her new show on HBO)
Smelled the Spring Flowers in Central Park (at least I think that’s what I smelled.)
Met up with My Friend Cordelia…
Who always knows where to find the off-the-beaten path things to do and experience. Be sure to visit her blog, Cordelia’s Journeys for reflective posts and amazing photography.
Admired the New World Trade Center Building
Couldn’t Pose on the Steps Where Some Law & Order Episodes Have Been Filmed (Vanity Fair hosted the opening party for the Tribeca Film Festival.)
Was Wowed by New York by Gehry Building (Light dances off the building.)
Gained a New Appreciation for Street Art (Yes, I do believe that’s Tom Hanks’ head on a dog’s body.)
Watched Some of the Chinese Community Play Games in Columbus Park
Reflected at African Burial Ground National Monument(Which dates back to the 1600s.)
Oh yeah, in addition to the lunchtime work function, enjoyed some delicious bites for dinner.
In short, I’m a little tuckered and feeling old but know after a few hours of sleep, I’ll be able to do it all over again.
So tell me, how was your day?
