The One Where I Open My Own Shop

Today is one of those rare NYC days where the weather is warm and sunny, but neither the heat nor the humidity has become oppressive yet. Of course, I am stuck in my office but I have opened every window in sight and made 4 trips to the deli across the street despite needing nothing. […]
