My Winter Break

Well, winter break is over and I'm reminiscing about all the things I learned. I had some new experiences over break and would like to share them with you.

#1 New York is has a lot of people in the city during the holiday. I've never been to New York City before and decided to visit a friend for New Years. The streets were so crowded, I was actually happy to take the subway. Also during this trip I learned to not stand to close to the end of the subway platform because those cars fly through the stops.

#2 If a man with a top hat and a cloak gets on the subway, don't get off, you will miss something fabulous. While riding the subway home one night a short man with a large mustache, top hat and cloak got on our subway car. Needless to say he was a little intoxicated, told some hilarious jokes and serenaded the train car to a beautiful rendition of a song by Carol Burnett. I wish I would have videotaped it.

#3 Weddings are all about facial expressions, sit back and watch the awkwardness ensue. I haven't been to a wedding in a long time and was asked to go with my friend to one just a couple weeks ago. I didn't know the couple but boy was it fun to just watch the reactions from the bride, groom and family. Much like the picture below, the bride seemed slightly insane and the groom scared out of his mind, and well the wedding party was mostly just drunk. All in all it made for quite the reception.

So these are some of the things I learned and experienced over break. Do you have any good stories to tell?
