a pig in a skirt, a romanesco, and a prom king

There are innumerable reasons why I love New York City. But one of my very favorite things is around every corner is the unexpected. Things you have never seen before, never thought you would ever see, things that make you laugh out loud, make you wonder, make you think, make you cry... On this particular day it was a pig in a skirt outside of a cute little clothing store (that I would love to carry my jewelry!)...
...a romanesco at the Union Square Green Market. Have you ever seen one of these? I haven't. They were beautiful and odd looking at the same time. The vendor had them on the same table as a pile of orange cauliflower and pale green cabbage. The table as a whole was gorgeous! I still need to look up the romanesco...
...and apparently you can find a prom king! He's the cutest prom king I have ever seen, that's for sure! It's funny, I've gotten desensitized to the graffiti I guess, I don't tend to notice it. It's a shame because some of it is really beautiful, some funny - like this one. But Tom does notice it. So when we were walking up a street in Williamsburg and Tom stopped and laughed I quickly shoved him under the writing to pose as my prom king - this is even better than a crown!

Awww. That's so true about NYC. After reading your post I am even more excited for my visit this summer for Renegade!
