First Night Here

Well tonight we've all just arrived it's 9:18 and my cousins are totally asleep and I'm trying to be tired and fall asleep. We went to dinner at a funky pub tonight and watched figure skating among other sports. I'm sad cause Sasha didn't win but the Japanese girl is beautiful skater too so I didn't mind so much that she won.
So far we're planning to shop tomorrow morning, see a modern art museum in the afternoon, then maybe comedy or poetry club at night. I never thought I see a poetry reading so this should be interesting.
I have to remember that Quentin isn't always by my side for the next 5 days. Tonight as I took a bus from the airport I got off at one stop and needed to wait for a second stop. An old Italian guy my Dad's age asked me were I was headed and were both going up the same way. So he's like we should take a Taxi, you can come with me and I'll drop you off first. I was like okay that shouldn't be too expensive, he said don't worry about I'll pay. Great thanks!! I should have known better as soon as we were in the cab he started asking me all these questions and then for my cell number since he'd seen me playing with it on the previous bus. I felt bad and actually did give him the right number but told him I was with my cousins and would have to ask them if it would work with their plans before agreeing to go out for dinner with him and his friends Saturday night. So what do you all think innocent old man who just wants someone to talk to, or dirty old pervert with ulterior motives?

Baby, when a guys pays he's hoping to get something in return... You MUST know that by now!!

Be safe, miss you.

Love Quentin.

You should have showed him your ring and told him that you only go for dinner with your handsome husband who you love! I would have probably given a fake number but no big deal. haha

Be safe Lisa! and have fun

Yes your right I should have good idea Candice, but I was caught off guard. I'll remember for next time.

Oh your right that was dumb I was just so excited to be here and I what the hell can someone do to me in a public cab. He did text message and send us an address to a party tonight though, and I can't say I won't love to go to any party in New York. It would be so Sex and the City and I'd love to talk to some ritzy New Yorkers.

I have to add this, I told the Italian story on my blog because I thought it was funny and thought oh I'm sure eveyone will love commenting about it. But, "Mother" I had no intention of actually meeting up with the old Italian guy, it was just a funny story for my first night here.

You are crazy - would you get into a cab with a stranger here? and i wasn't sure what you meant by a "public" cab, but once you two are in it alone there isn't much public there to keep you company... stay out of bad trouble! keep up the dancing and all the fun trouble, but stay away from situations where you could really put yourself at risk... we all want you back in one happy, non-traumatized piece!!!

Susanne said...

Oh, dirty for sure! :)

Who cares though? You got a free cab ride and a good story. It's fun to do risky stuff once in a while.

Susanne said...

(Hmm, don't think my last comment worked)

Dirty of course!

Who cares though? You got a free cab ride and a good story. It's good to take risks sometimes.

Oh wait, it did. Oh well!
