Picking up Lauren early. Brief stop in central PA. Driving in the city. Queens museum. Mierle Laderman Ukeles. Reunion. Camera stops working. Figuring out where to go. Finding parking. Coffee at the ELK. Overhearing two students nearby.Talking about little nothings. Walking along the High Line. Getting a free ticket to Dreamland. Goodbyes. Scalinatella with the fam. A martini. Everyone else is late. The handmade pasta is the highlight. Uber to my car. Pickup luggage. To the hotel. Romantic old New York feel. Grabbing a drink nearby. Drunken texts. Too much whiskey.
