In a New York State of Mind

Sometimes when my husband and I are involved in some mundane chore we like to talk about silly things.   The other day he was helping me get dressed and we were discussing our recent conversation with his daughter.   She lives in New York City and it’s been almost a year since we’ve seen her.   I know he misses her a lot even though they talk by phone several times a month.   He told me that he would love for us to go visit her one day.   I suggested it would be fun surprise for her.   We could book a room at one of those hotels on 5th Avenue and invited her to stay with us for a few days.   She could give us a tour of New York City and take us to a Broadway show.   Sure, we’re only daydreaming, but wouldn’t it be fun.
