New york trip prep day 1

In one week the ear doctor and I will be leaving for our trip to New York and I am R-E-A-L-L-Y excited. There are very few things I love more in life than being away from work with my best friend doing things we've never done before.

In an attempt to convey my excitement I'm doing to do a series about how we're getting ready.

This morning the ear doctor and I decided that we're going to start practicing talking like native New Yorkers. Unfortunately, the most exposure we have to real New York dialogue comes mainly from Seinfeld and movies featuring Brooklyn Mobsters.

So this morning there was a whole lot of "yadda, yadda, yadda" and "fogetaboutit" goin on in our house.

Clearly, we need help.

What other lingo should we be practicing to avoid standing out like the country bumpkins that we are?

Convert your "s" sounds to "z" sounds. As in "Boy-ze" and "greazy."

Also don't use west coast slang like crunchy or granola.

Also wear mostly black. Lol

Crunchy as in, "That barista with the dreads and unshaven legs is so crunchy."
