Last night, I was at the Philadelphia airport waiting for my friend, Janelle. For some odd reason, the planes were all backed up and she couldn't get to her gate. Unfortunately, she had to wait on her plane for an hour after it landed. In these cases, I like to put on my sociologist hat and do some observing.
The man sitting next to me smelled very good. He was very tall and had slicked back black hair. I didn't really take notice of him until he pulled out this WAD of one hundred dollar bills. I have never seen someone with that much cash except when I am watching The Sopranos. He took what had to have been over three thousand dollars and split it up into two rubber bands. It was probably a 30-70 split. Finally, a woman who I am assuming was his wife was greeted by the tall, nicely smelling man with the big wad of cash. He handed the smaller wad of cash to the woman and they walked away, hand in hand. It makes you wonder about their lives and what it is that he does for a living. He definitely would physically fit in with the Tony Soprano crowd. He had a gold pinky ring, a sharp dresser, and THAT BIG WAD OF CASH!
Janelle was finally able to depart her airplane and we took off for my nook of Philadelphia. We enjoyed a nice meal at one of my favorite Main Line Italian restaurants, Primavera Pizza Kitchen. They give you generous portions and their Caesar salad is wonderful. Today, we will go to the Reading Terminal Market and eat crepes.
