Ya'll. I keep getting lost on the way to work.
Ok, ok, not lost exactly, but whenever I'm on autopilot, I end up doing funny things. Funny things like:
- getting out at Union Square instead of 28th Street in the morning, or
- walking right past my office building til I look up and realize...I've walked right past my office building. Or,
- leaving the office, intending to walk up several blocks to a restaurant on 29th...only to remember I'm already on 29th.
It's amazing, in my head, I've stepped into the Manhattan map, only my origination/termination point, is my old office building. So, when I'm on autopilot, I end up completely disoriented, and not where I'm supposed to be.
I suppose it's natural - I mean, I spent a third of my life in that building (holy crap), but still, it's so odd!
Of course, the new gig in a new building does mean getting to know a new neighborhood, and new restaurants.
Dos Caminos isn't one of those new restaurants - my friends have been going there for years for lunch. And since I rarely did lunch, I never did get to go with them.
So I finally got to go, and voila! Magnet!
