Good Guac, A Pregnant Best Friend And NYC Art That Scared The Living Daylights Out Of Me
Earlier today I headed into the city for an early lunch with my pregnant best friend. She works right next to an interview I was heading to and I couldn’t resist making plans. It’s her first baby and I am just SUPER excited for her. I will talk about the interview a little later on – when details are more finalized – but good things are happening.
Sylvia and I headed over to Dos Caminos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a huge bowl of guacamole. Y-U-M. We caught up over a great meal and then I walked her back to her office. As we were walking, I saw something that scared the you-know-what out of me. A man standing on top of a building leaning over as if he was going to jump. I started to freak and my friend calmed me down. She showed me a few more “men” on rooftops from where we were standing. Turns out it’s a new outdoor art exhibit that’s going on all around NYC.
I did a little research online and it turns out that people are constantly calling the cops thinking these statues are real people. I mean, how could you NOT think they were real?
What do you think about the exhibit? I really got nervous before I found out it was all fake. And if I’m being honest, my college roommate committed suicide by jumping off a mountain, so I didn’t really find it amusing. It brought back feelings of loss.
