Yes, I am here, and yes, it is great to be back. Everything is pretty much as I left it, although no one consulted me about the brand spanking new N trains — I mean, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely would have said it was a great idea, but it might have been nice to at least have been ASKED if I thought it was a good idea so that at least I knew NYC was thinking about me, but I guess NYC has just moved on from our two year relationship, and that’s sort of hard. NYC, you’re supposed to PINE for me, not act like there are seven million other fish in the sea!!! Sigh.
But it’s so great to catch up with old friends and my amazing cross-country co-workers, and I’m just so happy to be here. Of course, the next car alarm that wakes me up in the middle of the night might be the one that sends me into a New York-style rage, but hey — that would be fun too.
So thanks to NYC for welcoming me back with open arms. You look good. No, I mean it, really, you look great. Oh, this old thing? Gee. Nice of you to notice. Sigh. It really is good to be back.
