are the best when they include silly inside jokes at work –
pretending to be the Spice Girls. Telling your boss he should dress
up like Mr. Bean and getting yelled at. Touring a new apartment
building and escaping to the roof. A 4:00-5:00 happy hour with all
things British, including Prince William and the Beatles. Taking four
wacky photobooth pictures, and stealing a double-decker bus off the
wall for my office decoration. Getting free tickets to Shakespeare in
the Park from Veronica and getting to invite three extra people
because she finagled additional tickets. Walking from work to the
temple to practice the piano. Stopping to buy a cookie at Levain.
Getting down and dirty with Debussy after a long piano hiatus.
Meeting up with friends in the park. Watching a hilarious rendition
of “Love's Labours Lost” with fantastic acting, singing, and even
a marching band! Laughing hysterically when the four main characters
break out into a boy band reenactment of “To Be with You.” Light
rain and a cool night in Central Park. Free cupcakes. Creeping on one of the cute male stars of the play after the show, until he agrees to take a picture with us. Yep. Wednesdays like that are
