Every New Yorker is a world unto himself. Arrogant enough to live out loud while understanding their ultimate insignificance enough to assume nobody’s really listening. But I am. I always am because I am endlessly fascinated by the words people use. By how they talk to one another. By what they choose to say.
This is the first in a a series of such expressions I’ve overheard while riding a train, a bus or walking down the street. Some of them ridiculous, some wise, some touching…but all of them part of the cacophony of humanity that this wonderful city orchestrates.
