Where Harry Met Sally: That’s All.

Katz's Deli 2007

Where Harry Met Sally Katz's DeliWith a love of romantic comedy
and cured deli meats,
there was a natural spot for me,
Sally’s spot,
where they hoped
I had what she was having.

I didn’t, but corned beef
and a day in Manhattan
were good enough. Almost.

Video: “I’ll have what she’s having.

Katz's. That's All

    SUCH a great take on “signs” and a little peek into your life too, I loved both!

    We’d all love to have what Sally’s having. 😉

    What a great take on the prompt, Marcy. Did you feel a teeny bit compelled to pretend to have what Sally fake-had?

    This is great…personalizing a pop culture reference that is so well known…I can almost ‘see’ Meg Ryan through this 😉 And, how fun that you got to go there.

    Really enjoyed to roll of this piece and the connection to real life, as well as the reference to one of the funniest scenes ever :)) Had a look around your blog earlier today and also want to say Congratulations! Such unique and inspired challenges you are setting out for yourself! It reminds me of a line in The World According to Garp (in the movie, I can’t remember if it’s in the book) where Jenny is asked by one of her grandchildren what it’s like to be old. She responds: “Well if you’re very lucky, you’ll have lots and lots of memories and when you get old, you can think about them.”

    You aren’t bored or boring now and you certainly won’t be when it feels like to time to reflect. Wow! :))

    I live in NYC. My beau and I went through a phase of eating Katz once every 2 weeks for about 3 months.

    You are darn right those are good enough! 🙂

    Fun take on the prompt! Loved it!

    haha, a literal sign! Your traveling seems to be more about challenging yourself; it’s good to know you let yourself be a tourist sometimes too.

      I do plenty of touristy things. I love a good photo opportunity, and, I don’t quite know why, but I love visiting any place that has been featured in a book, song, or movie. It’s a little brush with greatness, I guess. Thanks for your comment, Nathan 🙂
