While Hannah was visiting, we spent an afternoon at The Met. We stopped in the gift shop afterwards and while Hannah was looking for postcards, I was in the children's section playing with the unicorns, princesses, and knights figurines. What this has to do with The Met, I'm not sure, but I clutched the unicorn close to my heart and said, "Oh I really want to take her home!" Hannah told me to buy it and I asked, "But what does it do?" I pictured it collecting dust in all the clutter in my small apartment. "It doesn't have to do anything," she answered, "it's a unicorn."
And so... I went to The Met and returned with a unicorn. : )
