Dear Diary:

During the cold snap in early February, three women — Melinda, Paige and Roxanne — visiting from Lake Charles, La., bustled into the Irish pub at Seventh Avenue near 54th Street. Our conversation warmed up quickly:

Me: “What’s been your favorite part of your trip to New York City?”

Melinda: We rode the subway to ground zero yesterday, and then we visited Ladder 10! The firemen gave us a tour of the station with their clothes on!”

Of course she meant their uniforms and gear, but I was laughing so hard, she made sure I understood. Come visit New York when it’s warmer, ladies. There’s so much more to see!
