    Scented bookmarks at the library. The one we picked up today smells like tanning lotion.

    I've often helped perplexed tourists, but none who'd reached the point of tears.
    I'm curious: What's the story?

    Glitter. I don't wear too many sparkly things, but I love seeing glitter sparkling in the sun, under lights or anywhere!

    I was outside my office building looking at my phone and this woman comes up to me - she is crying and shaking and says: "I'm lost! My friend left and I'm lost!"

    Me: "Well, you are in good hands because I am a born and bred New Yorker" I proceeded to tell her where she was (Garment District) and acclimate her as to where Times Square and Macy's were. And East & West. She wanted to find Talbots so I searched on my phone and gave her directions. At the end her tears were gone and I left her with 'enjoy New York! It's a really great place!"

    I always get lost when I travel so I know how it feels - I always rely on the kindness of strangers to situate me. I hope the tourist goes back to wherever she lives with a glowing experience of NYC.

    I love this post! I wear glitter around my eyes and always pronounce it 'glitter day'. Some might say I am too old for glitter - but I don't care!
