Back in the day, we were all watching Sex and the City on HBO.....Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP to her fans) was adorable, looking for love - everywhere!- and don't you just love her shoes???
Well, now fast forward to 2021.....we are in the midst of a Global Pandemic (that has continued way longer than anyone could imagine!!!). ...we cannot socialize with our family and friends, we have cleaned out every closet in the house......Geeze Louise!!!!
And, now, they announce a new Sex and the City!
I am up for anything positive! So,.....I begin to view the original series on HBO to reminisce and, quite frankly
I am a bit perturbed.........the actions of these women now, today, seems a bit......appalling!
I had loved, loved this series!
I had loved, loved SJP......yes, I felt we were on that level!
But throw a global pandemic into the mix and, what mixed feelings emerge!
They are just now filming the new Sex and The City and it will certainly be interesting!
I have had a love affair with New York City since I was nine years old! The Stanhope? Yes, been there always and it was lovely!
Algonquin? Oh, yes, late night dinners!
There was a wonderful restaurant near the Met called Uzie's that served the best Gorgonzola Bread!.......]
I could go on and on.......fond memories, but New York City is no longer the City of Dreams that I enjoyed.....I can't tell you how excited I would get rounding the bend and seeing the skyline as we would descend into the tunnel.....ok, ok, let's see what the new movie is about and then we can talk.
But, I must say with this global pandemic and the extreme political correctness and the animosity of our citizens, the New York City I knew is not the same and will probably not be for a long time to come.
