this is not a dress rehearsal. this is what we have been preparing for. this is why we write those rent checks every month. this is why we stay up late working on the things we care about long after our “work day” ends. this is why we can justify a beer-and-shot deal pretty much any time.
it’s because we live in brooklyn.
