I stop and think of my own life and take things for granted. I took the Sprite to the Central Park Zoo. It was just too hot to go to the Bronx Zoo. It was her first trip to the zoo and a lot of firsts.
I was unaware that the Tranquil Sea had never been to a zoo or an Italian Restaurant.
Perhaps as a native NYC type sometimes I take things for granted.
The Sprite was drawn to the fountains of Columbus Circle. She had never seem them before. I was to find out later she had never seen a horse up close either. I did make a small mistake and should have brought a camera, not for me but for the Sprite. She did enjoy feeding goats and lambs at the Childrens zoo. We did look for an antisemitic Duck at the Zoo and did not find one.
The Sprite enjoyed a good meal at the Italian restaurant. I was shocked that apparently the Tranquil Sea has never eaten in an Italian restaurant.
We think of our own lives as typical, but in fact they are not. I was reminded of that in California when I ordered in Chinatown with zero difficulty while my peers could not get served. My life may not be as typical and average as I had assumed. Maybe nobody's life is in actuality.
