It’s a really “horny” town

Being away from your hometown for many years really helps to bring back some sensibilities you might have previously been impervious to. And so it has been for me on this latest 36 hour trip to New York.

Most noteworthy this time around however has been how often horns are used as a form of communication. It’s used say anything from “hey, light turned to green”, to “move that f—en car out of the way”, to “hey, you can’t see the pedestrian light is red a–hole?”, to “hey, I got there first”.

And so it’s been the whole time, whether “horning” as a nudge or a more blatant yell, it seems that no one is content to move through this congested city, very quietly. Perhaps some drivers are concerned they won’t be noticed on their way through life, or maybe just didn’t get picked for the last reality show they auditioned for (“I’ll show them that they can’t ignore me!”), who knows?

Suffice it say, in New York, the lion does not sleep tonight.
