What’s happening here?

If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere.
My first day in New York City.
I took to the streets, walking to the office, I immediately noticed New Yorkers don’t adhere to the three foot rule. If you get to within three feet of a person, you smile and greet them. I scared me some New Yorkers.
The Empire State Building was lit in green and blue tonight.
It’s up to you New York, New York.
I found a little book by one Blanche Ebbutt schooling men marriage. Woman had a different way of handling men in the old days.
What follows are some of the entries I enjoyed along with my thoughts.
“Don’t sit down to breakfast in your shirt-sleeves in hot weather on the ground that “only your wife” is present. She is a woman like any other woman. The courtesies you give to womankind are her due, and she will appreciate them.” What, he has to put on a shirt? Well at least it didn’t say I had to get dressed before breakfast.
“Don’t stoop, even if your work is desk work. Your wife wants to see a broad chested man.” Sing it, Sister. I loves me a broad chested man.
“Don’t sharpen pencils all over the house as you walk about. Try a wastebasket. It does not improve the carpets or the servants’ temper to find scraps of pencil-sharpenings all over the floors.” Wow, slow the horses down, Missy. What are these servants (plural) that you speak of? My married friends have been holding out on me.
I must sign out now as I’m going to find the gaggle of servants that apparently follow husbands around.
