– You know those days when you get the mean reds?
– The mean reds. You mean like the blues?
– No. The blues are because you’re getting fat and maybe it’s been raining too long, you’re just sad, that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
– Well, when I get it, the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then… then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!
And as you can see, I’m a sucker for Breakfast at Tiffany’s. No. Correction. I’m a sucker for Tiffany’s. The movie was OK. (The book: SO much better. No happy Hollywood ending, though; don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.)
But anyway. Tiffany’s has been on my mind all day today – oh, who am I kidding, all week – because, you see, today I had an appointment at Niketown to pick up my new, limited edition NWM LunarGlide+ 4 kicks.
