This post is lots of pictures. I'll keep it down to as few words as possible!
Scene: Andrea's apartment
Sunday, 5:30 - We get up. No, seriously.
6:30 - We leave. Eventually the subway comes.
7:20 - We get out of the subway. Want to go to Starbucks but the line is HUGE!
7:30 - Our shift starts. I'm alone on the 5th floor and Andrea's working the 4th. We're door monitors today.
7:50 - All of the teachers for this floor are ready to go: Shiri Mor, Rosemary Drysdale, Martin Storey, and Sarah Hatton.
7:51 - Nicky Epstein comes wandering down the hall. She can't find her classroom. She's a little frazzled and I show her how to get to her class. Rosemary Drysdale is laughing, saying "She's always like that. She always does this!"
8:00 - 11:00 - I eavesdrop on Rosemary's class. She's the only one who leaves the door open. I knit my Socks in Progress. I sit on the floor since I gave my chair to one of the students. I can hear someone taking a bath in the room right behind me. Then someone takes a shower. Weiiiird. Andrea gets a partner so she make a Starbucks run for us. Oh thank goodness for coffee. The Starbucks inside the hotel is terrible. Both our drink suck. I drink it anyway. Also, I love Rosemary Drysdale.
11:30 - Done with my last shift!
