"I'd Rather Be..." Wednesday

If I could, I'd rather be in New York City right now. Christmas in NYC is just so glorious! It puts on quite a show.
My husband and I lived in The City for one year and it's amazing how that experience has stayed so fresh in my memory.
There is even money rolling down the streets there! (Did you know that already Robin? ;-> ) One St. Patrick's Day, on our way to a pub, of course, there were bills floating down the sidewalk in my direction. Ya-hoo!
Then, at Christmas time, while hubby and I were on our way to buy gifts I came across what looked like some kind of bill just lying on the sidewalk. I put my foot on it and said 'Rob, I think there's a $50 dollar bill under my shoe'. I lifted my foot, he looked at it, and sure enough it was a $50. Merry Christmas to me!!!
(We actually stayed on the corner for a while waiting to see if anyone came by looking for something they'd lost. No one came by.) My husband was a Waiter/Actor at the time and this was a terrific bonus from the fates at hand.
So heck yeah! I want to be in NYC for Christmas! Oh wait, I have children. Um, maybe they can stay home with Grandma. (Bad Mommy!)

Is there any place you'd rather be today? Play along with lovely Mr. Linky

  9. I would rather be sailing in the British Virgin Islands.... someday we're going to get down to The Bitter End Yacht Club and just hunker down for a week of beach, swimming, sailing, and holiday fun. Not sure how many years it will take to save up for pricetag of something like that, but it sure seems fab. :)

  15. I'd rather be 21, but I guess I'd have to settle for finding 50 bucks in the gutter.

    When I first saw your post title, I thought you were speaking as a day of the week, like Monday, wishing you were Wednesday. Poor Monday.
