Walking Resolution

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Tabitha, Frank.

Subject: Walking

Ugh!” Tabitha says. “I’ve been so lax with weight loss and exercise.”

From Pictures

Wasn’t it your New Years Resolution to lose weight?” Ann asks.

Now it’s my October resolution.” Tabitha says.

Maybe I should resolve that..I’ve been meaning to introduce a little more activity into my lifestyle.” Frank says from the couch.

You mean taking a break from poker on the couch to get a beer from the fridge isn’t active?” Ann jibes.

Hey now! Weren’t you just saying yesterday you wanted to be a little healthier? Especially before the holidays?” Frank replies.

I always look back at holiday pictures of me and cringe. Not this year.” Tabitha says, adamantly.

Let’s at least go for a walk.” Ann says.

I could get behind a walk.” Tabitha says.

Uptown or downtown?” Frank asks.

It’s not like we live in San Francisco where one way is uphill..what does it matter?” Ann says.

We still have to choose whether we turn left or right at the corner.” Frank says.

We’ll exit the building, turn right, then turn left and go downtown. Acceptable?” Tabitha says, grabbing her coat.

They exit the building and start walking west.

How many blocks are we doing?” Frank asks, as they reach the corner. “I’m already kinda tired.”

Well, what’s the formula..10 blocks is a mile?” Ann asks.

No. That can’t be right, seems too short..20?” Tabitha asks, as they head south.

20 is the number I’ve heard. So..we’ll do 15 and turn around?” Frank asks.

A mile and a half? I guess that’s okay.” Ann says.

We don’t need to turn around. We’ll turn left and head back up the next avenue. Change of scenery.” Tabitha says.

It’s cold out today.” Ann says, nothing the wind blowing some papers across the street.

Yeah. Glad I brought my jacket.” Tabitha replies.

Oooh, street cart. Let’s get a pretzel.” Frank says, reaching for his wallet.

No!” Tabitha says, grabbing Frank’s hand and pulling him along. “That defeats the purpose of exercise.”

Oh fine.’ Frank says.

Entertaining Ashley

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Sara’s Sister

We’re all hanging around in the living area with Sara’s sister Ashley who’s here visiting until after New Years.

“So Ashley, what are you going to do while you’re here?”

Ashley: “Oh, well, whatever Sara wants to do, you know? I’m really just here to visit her. And get up to Zabars.”

Ahh, yes, the yearly pilgrimage to Zabars.”

Zabars. So cliché, I suppose you want to go to Times Square and take a picture with the naked cowboy as well?”

Ashley: “No no, that’s touristy stuff! I do want to try to go to that cool restaurant you guys took me to last time I was here though.”

You mean Catalina’s? I don’t know if I’d call it cool.”

“I certainly don’t think it’s cool. You should check out that Italian place downtown that we went to last month.”

That place was delish! Those Raviolis…mmmmmmm” Billy rubs his stomach contently.

Ashley stares oddly at Billy for a second. “I’m really not into Italian.”

Frank gasps.

Just stick to the tried and true plan. Never fails.”

Drinking?”

Drinking!!”

Billy grins and high fives Scott. “Drinking!”

Ashley: “Is that all you guys do?”

Tabitha giggles.

Ashley: “How about we just walk around, take in the sights?”

It’s kind of cold..”

Aww, don’t be a wuss Tabitha. Just walk faster and it’s not too bad.”

We can just make frequent hot chocolate stops.”

Ashley: “Sounds good to me.”

Snow Snow Snow

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today’s contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha, Frank and Scott.

Subject: Finally, some snow

“It’s snowing!” Tabitha shouts, bursting into the apartment.

“I noticed. It’s really going to kill my tips this afternoon though.”

“This is one of those days where I’m glad I’m not working so I don’t have to fight with subway delays and slushie street corners.”

“This is the first real storm we’ve had with accumulation, I can’t believe it’s almost March.”

“Probably the last one too.” Frank says, emerging from his room to see what all the commotion is about.

“I checked the weather, It’s supposed to be a little warmer this weekend, probably going to melt most of it.”

“That means there will be all sorts of business people leaping over huge puddles of water in intersections come Monday morning. There is nothing funnier than a guy in a suit rushing to work stepping in a puddle and soaking his pant leg halfway up to his knee.”

“You take some real pleasure out of other people’s misfortune don’t you?”

“Come on! You don’t think that’s funny?”

“Come on Tab, it’s hilarious!”

Tabitha grins. “Okay, okay, it’s funny. I actually think it’s funnier trying to watch women in high heels keep their balance on snow and ice.”

“Yes!”

“The best part about it snowing in the city is no shoveling! If I were at my parents house I’d be outside pushing a shovel around and helping my dad clean off the cars.”

“It’s one of the less known benefits of not having a yard or a driveway.”

“I’m going out for a walk in the snow. Anyone want to come? The city is so pretty covered in white..”

Tabitha, Sara and Scott depart the apartment.
