what was I thinking?
After 10 years in NYC I thought it was time to go view the inflation of the parade balloons. I've heard some great stories but NO one told me about the crowds. I know that it's become the thing to do in the last few years, but this was insane. I kept thinking they need to go home to feed these kids, but no. The parental commentary was predictable, "where can I get a drink...", yes, where.
