My Vacation

The following exchange, or something very close, has occurred more than once in the past few days:

Solicitous Californian: So Chocolate Lady, you seem to be experiencing some severe culture shock.

Chocolate Lady: What? I didn’t say anything! What did I say? I love it here!

Solicitous Californian: (chuckles wickedly).

I very much appreciated The Chocolate Lady's account of her encounter with the Solicitous Californian. I well remember my own first experience of San Francisco. I was struck by its cosmopolitanism, sophistication, and beauty. But it wasn't until I was standing on a line waiting for a cable car that I realized the real signature of the experience: that I was in a huge, civilized, literate and metropolitan city in which not one person was hysterical.

That's quite a concept for a New Yorker.
