Sorry... I have gas.

The city appears to be all a-flutter due to the smell of gas permeating throughout the west side of Manhattan. From downtown to midtown, with some buildings even being evacuated as a precautionary measure. I can hear sirens wailing every few moments, no doubt emergency workers trying to pinpoint where the smell is coming from. (Some initial reports say there is a gas leak not too far from where I work.)

My mother even called to check on me.

So, I decided to be a responsible NYC citizen, and check to see for myself how extensive the problem is.

I went downstairs, lit up a cigarette, and waited to blow up.

I didn't. We're fine.

Yeah. It's near my apt. Maybe. Unless it's someplace else. Newscasters seem confused. Color me anxious.

Hey there -
I'm going to be in NY the 26th - 29th of this month. Is there anything fun going on then? Are you and your clan busy? I'm not looking to get into too much trouble - maybe just food with people or something like that.
