Highlights included being told that I sound "just like that girl Whitney, the one on The City!" and being offered "paper knickers." Why yes thank you, I would love some paper knickers.
I may not be fitting in the "cultural stuff" in my last three weeks in this lovely city (I was supposed to go to the British Museum today but instead I waxed, got breakfast with Molly, and am now doing laundry and pretending to write one of my four papers) but I think I'm definitely experiencing the culture. When am I ever going to be offered paper knickers in New York, or have someone reference The City unironically, for that matter? Exactly.
