A Day Off

Today was the U.S. federal holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I stayed home and spent the day alone, since the Husband is out of town.

I am recovering from a bad cold. So I took it easy in the morning - I spent it in my pajamas on the couch, watching movies on BET - including The Color Purple and a documentary on Rosa Parks.

Then in the afternoon, I bundled up and wandered around my neighborhood.

I snapped this photo of a building on my walk.

Maybe it's just me, but isn't it odd to have an OTB place sharing an entrance with a yoga studio?

The clientele would be quite different. And OTB places are generally noisy - does that interfere with the yoga classes?

Does anyone ever accidentally stumble into one, intending to go to the other? Are they owned by the same people?

Or maybe there are people who gamble, and then after losing they go next door to take a yoga class to relax and accept the fact that they've lost?

THIRTYSOMETHING (!!) year old Asian American New Yorker, lawyer, amateur musician, curious girl taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Don't mess with me - I'm short and I look demure, but I carry a big purse. And I've just embarked on the journey of married life in Manhattan.
