Explosions in Downtown Philly...

One of my very best friends is in town (from OBX) and we were determined to go shopping on Walnut Street (best street in Philly for those not from here: Mac, Puma, Tiffany, Diesel, Lucky, Kenneth Cole, Cole Hahn, Kiehls, Burberry, Coach and many more...all on one street!).

There is no shopping like this in the Outer Banks and she misses it and the Philly restaurants as she's been down there for almost eight years now. So we were on a mission.

We picked up AB at her office on Broad Street and went to Monks for lunch (where we had a delectable apple chicken sausage sandwich with spicy raspberry mustard -Yum!). Before our food came Liz called to say there had been explosions at 15th & Market (at the famous clothespin) and they didn't know what was going on yet. Of course everyone’s first reaction was “bombs”. I realized at that moment that 'the terrorists had NOT won' because even if it were bombs planted on the regional Rail system, I had no intention of cutting my shopping day short...

I called 92alpha and confirmed the incident and he promised to call if the situation worsened... and off we went.

So the lesson for the day was that terrorism hasn't triumphed over Capitalism! Take that Osama...
