In New York, there is always a wait for everything – bars, restaurants, Philharmonic or Shakespeare in the Park, etc. Every Independence Day, New Yorkers wait from the early morning to camp out just to see the mediocre fireworks over the East River or the Hudson. In Charleston today, we walked to the Waterfront Park to prepare to watch the fireworks at 9pm tonight and saw no one else there waiting. In fact, no one really started coming to set up their lawn chairs until around 6 or 7pm! It suddenly made me realize how much more laid back the rest of the country is and how they realize it’s not worth spending hours on end waiting for any single event to happen. New Yorkers seem to think it’s the “in” thing to wait their entire life. There’s too much waiting and not enough doing.
