Hello, it is I, a New Yorker. Can I say that yet? It’s been 5 years. Carrie Bradshaw once said, it takes 9 years in New York to be a New Yorker. And being that things stated on Sex and the City are the fundamental basis of my belief system, I guess I have a few years to go. Anyways, I was thinking about Cabs, and how I feel about them. I very rarely take them, as they make me feel guilty for spending money on something I could very well do myself. They seem too luxurious or excessive or something. Considering all of the the dumb things I DO waste money on, I’m proud to say that I’m at least not a frequent cab taker. But: when you really are in a hurry, or every now and then – there’s really no better feel than thrusting your hand into the air – and having a cab pull over, just for you, your private (stinky) chariot to do your bidding.
