Come next week, I will be in NYC, which I'm not wholly exited about, mainly because I would prefer to switch out the "NY" for "O" - so:
NY - NYC = C + O = CO or OC
But beaches and the PCH are a dream in the distance for me, because for the next four (or five) years, California is no longer my home. But after 12 years in California and 5 years in Europe, I'm not even sure where I'm from. Sometimes, I can swear I'm Polish.
