I am like the soul of New York!
"What are you doing?"
"You smell like coffee."
Kate smelled of cherries, of gunpowder, of the afternoon summer heat in Central Park.
Castle smelled of ground coffee, of pencil shavings, of the stale musty air in a downtown comic book shop.
Together: they smelled of storm clouds over New York, of passion mingling with lighting strikes and thunder claps, of rusty childhood swing sets.
"I love New York on summer afternoons when everyone’s away. There’s something very sensuous about it - overripe, as if all sorts of funny fruits were going to fall into your hands."
Uptown Girls, 2003"Do you know what etage your daughter’s at in ballet, Mrs. Schleine? Or that she was banned from her science class for stealing a formaldehyde pig so she could give it a proper burial in Central Park? And the tea set you got her, it’s… exquisite and beautiful, but do you know how she likes to have her tea? How many lumps? One lump, two? Cream, sugar? (…) You’re right. You don’t know what goes on between me and Ray.”
One of the best underrated Disney songs.
If you’re wondering: Croissant + doughnut. Delicousness. We now return to Castle, in progress.
