NEW YORK 1 | KELLEY 0
To say I was off my game today is perhaps the biggest understatement I can offer. I got lost the entire day. I took two wrong subways by confusing uptown/downtown, East/West....you know, just the really simple basics.
I couldn't figure out why the subway flew past my stop only to discover I had gotten on an express route and not a local. I came out of the heated subway death tunnel and walked the entirely wrong way. By 14 (long) blocks. I forgot my water bottle and had to pay $5 for street water because I was about to pass out. I forgot to grab the papers I needed and I was 53 blocks away.
New York won today....but I'm not likely to surrender any time soon. And there is something so funny about an entire day of errors, but at least I got my exercise.
