I’m walking behind a young boy, maybe four years old, and his dad. They’re holding hands and talking in Spanish, about the parking place they found and something about Mama that I didn’t get. Then the kid says, “We need ta poo.”
Dad says, switching to English, too, “You just went before we left home.”
Kid: “We need ta poo.”
Dad: “Well, I don’t, so if you don’t, then we don’t.”
Kid: “We need ta poo!”
Dad: “Okay, no problem. We’re almost at the park and they have a potty there.”
Whereupon the kid stops, pulls on his dad’s hand, points to the stuffed bear the little girl ahead on the sidewalk is carrying, and says, slowly and loudly because adults can be so dim-witted, what he’s been saying all along: “WINNIE! THE! POOH!”
I love New York.
I love New York so much I made a 2019 calendar. Get yours now while there’s a discount!
SJ Rozan 2019 Calendar
All the photos except one were taken in New York. Extra points if you spot that one.(Hint: this isn’t it.)
December is here, and just in time for your holiday shopping, so are the 2018 SJ Rozan Calendars! This year there are three: FAKE BIRDS, with some of the year’s best fake bird photos; FOOD, and need I say more? And now, for her many fans, BELLA THE CAT.
Get yours (and everyone else’s) today!
Finally, the 2017 Accordion Calendar is here!
Sorry, I had technical issues, which I’m still having, hence the url to copy and not a link to click:
And don’t forget the New York and Assisi calendars, too.
Proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
For your gift-buying pleasure, including, of course, gifts for yourself. They’re not quite all here (kind of like me) — Accordions to come, give me a few days. But
New York City is here
Assisi is here.
And please note: Proceeds this year go to Planned Parenthood. So, buy away!
Not mine, not Eating in Translation’s, but Oxford University Press’s SAVORING GOTHAM. You win it at Eating in Translation, one of my favorite websites, so check out the contest rules. It makes a great holiday gift. As does, of course, a 2016 SJ Rozan Calendar.
For your holiday gift-giving pleasure. You don’t have to deal with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday (though it’s true I’m a Very Small Business), Cyber Monday, or Happy, Sleepy, Doc, or Bashful, either. Just order your Travel Calendar, your Flowers Calendar, or your Five Snouts of Mongolia, Plus Calendar (and where else are you gonna get THAT?) for a year of photos like these.
