“This one, I swear there’s a call or a text every ten seconds. Don’t they know that plane was a sealed-up tight flying bomb? I’ll feel a hell of a lot better when that battery finally goes dead.“


“ I tried to conceive immediately after I got married. But I didn’t get pregnant until I moved to the city. New York is a very special place. I wouldn’t raise her anywhere else.“


“ The typewriter is the best way to get to know New Yorkers. We just volunteer to write. We’ve typed up love poems, want ads… Allen’s written resignation letters for people. Sometimes we just offer haikus to people on the street. Once I typed someone’s suicide note. “

“On a good day? On a good sunny day? A dozen maybe. Eighteen, tops. The smaller items always sell the fastest, but today I’m out my entire inventory! I’ve never seen anything like it.“
“Why are they selling so fast?“
“I have no idea. I’m keeping this one, just in case.“
