A new I Love Lucy story
So ... I'm still in New York and I needed a taxi and couldn't get one because I'm a wuss. I downloaded this app called Uber and THEY SEND A CAR RIGHT TO YOU. It's seriously magic.
I was standing right adjacent to Times Square with a bazillion people all around and the guy came RIGHT TO ME. In like 2.5 minutes too. His car was clean and he was POLITE.
It was awesome.
But. (You knew there was going to be a but, right?) When I plugged in the address for him, Something-Something Broadway ... I forgot to put the word STREET and guess what what? Instead of going down the road a few miles, he was taking me to Queens. Across the bridge. Because I'm an idiot.
"So what brings you to Queens?" he asked.
"Nothing. I'm not going to Queens," I answered.
"Yes you are," he said.
"No, I"m not," I said.
"Yes, you are," he said.
So then I suggested he explain why he was kidnapping the hapless romance novelist and he said I'd tapped on the screen for a Something-Something Broadway in Queens not Manhattan. Which prompted another 'yes you are' 'no I'm not' conversation.
Thankfully he was a good sport and a very nice man and he forgave me for being an idiot and from California. ;-) AND he got me to my meeting on time.
Gah. Tell me one of your recent I Love Lucy stories to make me feel better!
