Came home and had a nap. Then when I woke up, mashfanficchick texted me and we got together in Jackson Heights where she was going to exchange something at Carter's. We ate lunch at a Chinese buffet there, which was tasty.
Then we went into Manhattan to Grand Central Station to the Transit Museum annex and gift shop. She got some stuff and I got a birthday present for The Kid, whose birthday is in a couple of weeks. I got her a mug with the Queens subway map on it.
Then we went to Sprinkles for cupcakes, and then we went briefly to Times Square. And then we headed back to Queens. At which point she headed off for home and I decided I had time to make the 8:00 portion of my meeting. And I should have had time too, if it wasn't that the 7 train got held up by something right outside the Flushing stop, for about 20 minutes. But even then I should have only been a few minutes late if the 50 bus had shown up when it should have. It didn't, and I was ultimately not there until 8:20.
I called the FWiB while I was waiting for the bus, and we talked. He is feeling better and coughing less.
The meeting was good. J was there, and after we left she invited me to get a ride home from her daughters. They just had to drop something off at Co-op City first. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. So I said yes... and they got lst and we ended up in Yonkers. It was actually fun in a weird sort of way. Eventually they got to Co-op City, and then delivered me home.
I called The Kid tonight, and all is well. Hopefully I will be going up there the 19th for Saturday and Sunday, for a combination of late Mother's Day and her birthday, and my birthday too.
And now it's time for bed.
1. Day in the city.
2. The FWiB feeling better.
3. The Kid.
