17th Birthday in NYC

Statue of Liberty I just returned from a whirlwind 56-hour trip to New York City to celebrate my daughter's 17th birthday.  Jayne, I had a spectacular time -- visiting two colleges, power-walking from Times Square to Battery Park (and then deciding to invest in an all-day subway pass), watching you excitedly rummage through a Greenwich Village music store, discovering your California-favorite Jamba Juice, having lunch with you at a Vegan restaurant (while I secretly longed for a chicken sandwich), enjoying late-night dinners and ice cream on Broadway, seeing two fantastic musicals -- Wicked and Altar Boyz (with a lead character wearing a University of Cincinnati jersey), and shopping for your birthday present at Bloomingdales (paying more for a pair of jeans than I have ever spent on a suit).  I won't repeat my blubbering like I did last year over your 16th birthday, but I want you to know that I love you beyond measure and will cherish every day of your last year at home before you leave to make your way in the world.  And thanks for enduring your weird father's NYC sight-seeing requests:

Wow, that third school is pretty gorgeous! Could you tell the people where that is!? (Since you're very good at responding to requests, I'll clarify that this is tongue in cheek.) Glad to see you enjoyed your trip to the city. Hope you liked our school.
