Looking Back: Cousin’s Apartment, Tudor City Place

A window in cousin's apartment, Tudor City Place, New York City

What a trip self had, last week, with Dearest Mum in New York.  There was a point where self thought she might not survive it.  It was late afternoon, Dearest Mum and self had somehow lost each other in Washington Square Park (There was some kind of fair:  all kinds of vendors and art exhibits.  Self chatted to a DC Comic Vendor and bought a Superman comic, an early one).  Then she lost Dearest Mum.  It was the most awful, panicky feeling.   She flagged a passing cab, and told the driver to circle.

“Who are you looking for?” inquired the cab driver.

“My mom,” self said.

“What does she look like?”

“She’s Asian” (DUH!!!).  “She’s short.  She’s wearing black.”

Cab driver, looking around:  “Gee, there are a lot of Asian women around here!”

But he was nice.  Later, Dearest Mum called self from a cab.  She had decided to abandon self and head back to the apartment in Tudor City Place.  Self forsook the cab and decided to take the subway home.  She got off at Grand Central and stopped to look over the seafood display in Grand Central Market.  She ended up buying crab cakes to take home for dinner.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
