For example, I was shopping with a friend who happens to be a Boston native, and when I told her I thought I needed a buggy, she laughed at me. Also, fly flap. I guess most call it a swatter.

But for the record, I've never been told to "dip" my credit card.

Another awesome update! Best moment has to be with the homeless people, that made me smile amazing coincidence on the train too, and what's a trip without some drama to go with it?

Glad to hear they got away safely though! Sounds like an exciting end to the trip!

I'm glad to hear that you found a homeless couple that was happy to have your leftovers. That was very nice of you to give them away!

Your NYC adventure was definitely exciting up to the every end!! Yay for a fun trip...and another fun trip right afterwards!!

Ah yes, it is obvious when the Rules Committee points it out.......

Based on that information, I will revise my Judy guess to 3 Judy's in the Today Show picture, the dip card pic, and............if you zoom in on Lauren's eyes in the fifth picture, you can clearly see a reflection of Judy taking that close up picture in Lauren's right eye.........

Oops, my right, Lauren's left..........the reflection in her right eye is a little too blurry to make a positive ID.........

"I'm going with the 1 obvious Judy. Could be one in the reflection in the Kleinfeld's window, but I couldn't make it out.

So 1."

And no, I don't think I have a clue who natebenma is so no personal agenda, but IMO it is the only completely fair ruling.

Wow! I'm not even groveling and marvali sticks up for my guess. Thanks, bud!

Fantastic finale to your NYC trip, Lauren! The food looked great, sorry you didn't enjoy it more. But what a nice idea (and suggestion) to pass it along to the homeless couple.

That is really cool that you ran into the guy from the Today show. You really ARE famous- you have been recognized on the street!

Your story about the garage ticket was hilarious!!! So funny that you were down to the wire in getting out. I could just picture the gate shutting and you sneaking out of there Mission Impossible style.

Very nice job on the report!

Sounds like you raised a good woman there.

Not...gonna..sing...it...

Still, it's neat that you ran into each other again.

I watched as several cars passed us and time ticked by. Finally, we saw it between the console and the driver’s seat. I tried sticking my hand down there, but there wasn’t room and I attempted to use tweezers, but that failed as well. Then, Mom started moving the seat and I was able to grab it.
My goodness. I'm glad you found it, although it would have been fun to hear about you trying to bribe the parking attendant with a blue I <3 NY t-shirt.

Good guess, but Judy acknowledged that you can detect her by her Vera bag in the screen of the "dip your card" picture.

When they told me that story after they got back, I said, "but you ate off of it!" and they said, "they're eating out of dumpsters, don't you think they'd rather have this?" Yeah, I suppose so.

Moo shu pork isn't one of our standard Chinese take-out orders, so she probably didn't know what to expect.

It was nice....definitely gave Judy and Lauren some warm fuzzies.

See, New York isn't so big after all. I think there's a scene in "Crocodile Dundee" where right after he arrives in NYC Mick says "See ya 'round" to someone, and the guy is like "yeah, right!", but then later he actually does.
