OK. I'm out last night with some pals, and we see this person standing outside of the Thomas PINK store... "Is that a statue?" someone asked? Nope... Just a guy... dressed up! Trying to be serious of course, representing the store... I couldn't resists, saying..."DON'T SMILE!" when I took his picture... He had a very hard time not smiling! hehe... to fun.
Later we ended up at a restaurant that had SMORES for desert! YES! We were ROASTING MARSHMALLOWS at our Table over charcoal... Who knew!NYC is always filled with fun and exciting experiences!
Proof of that is THIS!
