I'm quite a capitalist, you haveta admit. Don't be fooled by the color red you see me wearing. Made a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge today, got it for $100. That guy was a complete jerk. Talked him down from $500. Thought he could pull a fast one on me! The damn cables are rusted! After that I felt so good I bought my wife this Brooklyn sweatshirt. It's a Christian Dior, without the label. A steal at $75. Now, I don't wanna brag, but how 'bout that ocean behind us? Pretty nice ocean, huh? Just traded the Brooklyn Bridge for it. Plus $200 for the salt. Wheeling and dealing. High finance. Big business. It's working for me now!

Oh dear, you will have to read these lying in a safe position from now on!

This might make you laugh, too. I had originally written: "The damn thing's rusted!" but a friend from NYC pointed out that the Brooklyn Bridge is made of stone. So I checked a photo and changed it to "The damn cables are rusted!"

Hello! I am visiting you from a comment that you left on my blog entry where I talked about walking across the brooklyn bridge (http://girlscientist.blogspot.com/). Thanks for noticing my blog and for commenting! Also .. where did you get that lovely red shirt? I didn't see anything like that on my journey across the bridge ... bummer, that!
