You saw Sex and The City and thought, “New York seems cool…” Six months later you’re sweating your way up a 5th floor walk-up shoveling a two dollar slice in your face-hole… where did it all go wrong? Here are 5 lies told to us my Sex in the City:
1. You can afford to live alone in an apartment on the Upper East Side writing a weekly newspaper column.
Really, Carrie? Let me fill you in, If Tony Stark were real he’d need a second job to pay his rent. Carrie, your apartment is a big lie, either that or you live in a closet that magically connected to Narnia.
2. It’s super easy to find a man in NYC.
You’d have better luck finding rocking horse droppings. Good luck finding just one, single, decent dude. Really, Carrie? Deciding between two “dream ” men who you are dating at the same time?
3. Getting around NYC in 6 inch stiletto heels is a piece of cake.
Welcome to the reality of sidewalk grates, puddles, subway platforms…
4. We’re going to take taxis EVERYWHERE!
…Because NYC taxis are free and will take you anywhere if you compliment the driver on his shoes! NO!
On a writers budget, thank your lucky stars you don’t have to walk everywhere! I get it, it’s not very chic and stylish to be on the subway with people throwing bugs, sleeping, eating stinky food, but that’s just how it is. Deal with it.
5. Spending all your money on shoes.
No, just no. Funnily enough your landlord wont appreciate those rad Manolos as much as you do.
