1. Are you wearing purple for North America Lupus Awareness Day today?

2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

No you didn't answer, you refused to answer, two different things.  No, you don't need to disclose every place you have been but you seemed to think it was relevant, turns out that having been to NY or other places is not relevant.

I've not disclosed every place I have ever been, because who would care? But if it's relevant to the conversation and someone asks me whether I have been someplace or not, I answer truthfully.

You might want to note that spring refuses to address the same question to her, which one might concluded as not having any experience in this area to compare the two.  

I did, you just didn't like my answer. I don't need to disclose every place I have ever been, do I? Have you?

It's a blast, we have gone a few times now.  I have too many friends with season football tickets to buy any, lol.

That's great. We know people with baseball season tickets but not football. It is not as close to home though so that is probably one reason. It is a long day of commuting (when you take the trains) but so worth it. To try and get a bunch of people together, the amount of money they all want to spend, get a limo to and from, it will be a big project. Easier to send out an event on facebook and get some food and drinks.

I don't care whether Soring had been to my area of the country. She's been places I haven't been; I've been places she's never been. It's a big freaking planet. It's just not logical to believe that some NYC bagels are better than others, but ALL of them have some intangible commonality that makes all if them more different from all bagels produced elsewhere than they are different from each other.

We took our younger son on his "dream vacation" a few years ago. He had always wanted to go to Florida. He mapped out an itinerary that included two spring training games. I am not a huge sports fan, but I do enjoy a professional baseball game occasionally. They were fun.

Spring, if I had my "fill" of bagels, I would weigh two hundred pounds! I do try to hit a local bagel place when in NYC and have one bagel/lox/schmeer treat. I don't really care for pizza, but I do like other Italian food, so we often go to Little Italy for a meal. Unfortunately at my age I can't eat my way through a city anymore without paying for it for months afterward, so I usually just have one sweet treat in a weekend visit.
