How to hide in New York
Some friends were visiting from Louisiana and wanted to buy a camoflage New York Yankee's baseball cap. They were unsuccessful, not because there weren't caps (even in pink!) but because they were the wrong camo pattern for Louisiana foliage with too much dark green. As a New Yorker, might I then expect the NY Yankee's camo cap to be shades of grey and faded brick?
Or how about this woman spotted on the street? She is correctly camoflaged to hide in my closet. What a wonderful world!
