After two days back at work, I took today off. I’ve had a sore throat the last couple of days. (Illness seems to be going around.) This morning I woke up and felt crappy, so I called in sick and got back into bed. I slept on and off until noon. It… was… wonderful, probably because I felt like a lead balloon.
Then I went out and bought an air purifier. Ever since we moved into this apartment last summer I’ve had occasional stretches of waking up with a dry, sore throat. I figured an air purifier couldn’t hurt, and I decided it was finally time to buy one. So I walked up to Home Depot on 23rd.
Home Depot! In the city! I’d never been to the Manhattan Home Depot before. Matt just went for the first time a few days ago, and that gave me the idea.
They’ve got a big plant selection there. I might have to go back at some point and buy plants. Plants would be so… so… green.
More fun than going to Home Depot was walking up Fifth Avenue on a weekday. There are so many glamorous and good-looking people who must spend entire weekdays walking up and down Fifth Avenue, because they were all out there today. And such beautiful architecture and fashionable shops. It felt like what people who have never been to Manhattan imagine Manhattan to be like.
So now I’m going to relax and read.
