As Quick As A Tick In A New York Minute
|There are a lot of great benefits to having a psychologist for a wife. Having a psychowifey means leafing through the DSM-IV-TR at bedtime to snarkily diagnose family members. It also means a weird sense of humour: no one else in the world would be caught wearing a pair of Freudian slippers. And, of course, there’s tagging along to conferences.|
Last spring I got to see Tony Campolo give a plenary lecture at a conference where Focus on the Family and Liberty University were in attendance. There’s nothing quite like hearing a Baptist preacher disdain free trade, capital punishment and Premillennial Dispensationalism in that context.
This year there’s no Tony Campolo. Instead we're taking day trips to Philadelphia and New York. I’ve never been to either of those cities, so I’m feeling adventurous. We’ve got a general idea of what to do in New York. Right now we’re thinking Central Park, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, World Trade site and the Museum of Natural History. Philadelphia is a little more up in the air.
Anyways, has anyone been to either place? How’s the night life? Any cool spots we should hit while we’re there? What the hell is there to do in Philly?
