New York, New York!

My morning meeting ran much longer than I expected it to so I was rushing up Seventh Avenue from 29th, wondering if there was any possible way for me to make it to 117th and Broadway on time for my next appointment when suddenly, before me, there were FUZZY COW CABS. Despite my hurry, I stopped dead and whipped out my phone to grab a picture. FUZZY COW CABS! FUZZY! COWS!


Only in New York, I tell you, and right on time for a much needed smile. As I was snapping the pic, a woman about my size asked if I would like a ride in one of the "bull taxis," compliments of the Professional Bull Riders' Association. They are promoting their triumphant return to Madison Square Garden this month by dressing five NYC taxis up as bulls (you can't really see the horns in the picture, but there are horns as wide as the cab where the "on duty" light usually is) and ferrying folks around, free of charge, anywhere in Manhattan. Free! My associate and I quickly decided we were game and hopped in for a very nice (and speedy) ride uptown. It made my day!

that's awesome...& lucky! what are the odds if only 5 got dressed up? :) Since you're that lucky, maybe you'll be spotted by the cash cab one day for a ride where it's not only free but you can WIN money :)

The Universe shall provide. Usually in unexpected ways. Especially in New York.
