When I'm not at Kellie's in Brooklyn, I'm at Brandon's new place on Staten Island. I nearly crapped my pants in excitement when I discovered that the Staten Island Ferry, henceforth referred to as "The Glorious Staten Island Ferry," is free to ride. Did you hear that?! FREE! TO RIDE! That's amazing! I could ride that motherfucker back and forth all day and all night long! And I could eavesdrop on conversations like this one, between a guy with a thick New York accent and his girlfriend (read this dialogue aloud with the accent please):
GUY: I got some bad news and some good news.
GUY: Bad news is, we gotta get up at 7:30 tomorrow morning.
GIRL (upset): What?!
GUY: I gotta be out the door by 7:45.
GUY: You want the good news?
GUY (pointing to himself): You get to wake up to this face!
