    Robert, New York misses you too! This is wonderful — and I absolutely remember such managers and catsup bottles in NY delis in my childhood. Beautiful reading.

    My heart tugged for you just at the line “Some days I just miss New York way too much” alone.

    Aw. I know what you mean, friend, even if my New York isn’t even New York! Make sense?

    xo, Sheila
