new yorkers carry it better

I always thought I carried around a lot of stuff when I lived in DC. Oh no no no… Since moving to NYC, it’s become more. So much more.

This photo captures this nicely. It is the accumulated assortment from today. With temps in the thirties, I was trudging down the street in flip flops highlighting my fresh pedicure carrying a pack of 50 pee pads, 8 pounds of clean laundry (organic cleaners – yay!), a bag with my boots from earlier and Bourdain’s “No Reservations”, and a fresh fountain Diet Coke from Subway.

I think when you move into Manhattan, you agree to become a pack mule. Side benefit? Maybe sometime I’ll begin to show some faint glimmer of arm strength.

  1. Even if you don’t get arm strength, you are totally burning extra calories carrying all that stuff around.

    Love the toes!

  2. Hahaha…love this! I have to say, I never have to walk down the street carrying my laundry, but I feel like I carry a HUGE bag to work (often including food for the day + a pair of shoes). Oh, my aching back! 🙂
