Oh good grief, Man. What a miserable thing to have happen. Good that it didn't last any longer than "that" though.
It's hard to explain walking in NYC. The miles disappear with the city blocks. We walked from 34th St. to South Street Seaport. It just "happens."
Now, Mr. Mike. Front and center. You have some explaining to do. You were in the Village, yes? And you were on foot, yes? Walking here and there, to and fro... and you DIDN'T GO TO DEAN AND DELUCA???!!!! Well, that simply won't do. Back you go. And don't come home until you've been. :D :D
