>The good news: Dr. P is in town and staying with me. This makes me happy and we are living it up, if you consider eating out with other pals every night, running in various parks, shopping at Old Navy and Chelsea Market, and visiting a museum and touring a brewery to be the high life, which I do.

The bad news: Dr. P is not a baseball person, and everyone else we are hanging out with (thus far) is a rabid Mets fan like I am. The poor woman is therefore stuck listening to the rest of us moan and groan about the pathetic situation that we now face for the (lack of) post-season.

I'm going to miss her like a mad motherfucker when she returns to Florida on Sunday.
