driving to long island

upon reading this title, one might think...will this be a very quick blog OR will it be a very lengthy, arduous, headache inducing blog....because when one drives to long island, there should be no assumptions about how long or short the trip will take.

now, I have nothing against the 5 towns. There are some very nice people who live there and there are some very nice places to eat. There are also some very nice clothing stores that cater to a very small and narrow client base (that blog will be called "the day I went shopping with my friend Tutu for a dress for Jack's bar mitzva..better known as "the day that tutu saw banji cry....") Nice place-good food-home of the first really kosher dunkin donuts-a national landmark, if you ask me-it's all good in the other-land-of-milk-and-honey...

But getting there...OMG....two bridges, 17 highways, 400 traffic lights-are ya kidding me? Aside from the fact that when you finally make it to rockaway turnpike those planes fly so low over your car that you think they are coming right at you-it's scary!!! The van wyck-come on people-sometimes, you can fly down that little road and other times, walking backwards over hot coals would take less time.

Today I was lucky-made it there in 37 minutes (but then it took me 20 minutes to find parking) and going home it took 56-not bad. But there has got to be a better way to see really skinny women who I went to college with!!!!!!

so, I guess this would be a quick-traffic free blog...

Happy Sunday....1 week until purim and I become married to a much, much older man....
