• to refuse to take a flyer from that annoying, sandwich board-wearing person in the street, even if they wave it right under your nose.
• to congratulate yourself and your S.O. for surviving the mayhem that is Trader Joe’s, and still holding hands after.
• to pretend you’re running late when a clipboard-wielding Greenpeace volunteer tries to get you to sign something in Union Square.
• to tune out when your friends in other cities talk about how big their apartments are and how cheap their rent is.
• to decide not to buy something off Craigslist when you arrive and find it is not what you want, not what was described or in worse condition than promised.
• to get giddy when “New York, New York” comes on — or whenever you’re in Times Square. (Previously: Stay a Tourist Forever.)
• to bow out of yet another trip to the Met with out-of-town guests.
• to respond to a friend’s story with, “This totally reminds me of that episode of Sex and the City where…”

(The title of today’s post was inspired by my favorite feature in Glamour magazine.)
