Well, blansky, Brian, and jp: If she had been crass, impolite, looked down upon me as trash (some do, you know) I probably would have forgotten about it. But she was not: Katharine was actually recognizing my power over her in that instance and, to be truthful, I was disturbed with how I had acted. Suddenly, it was not a celebrity vs hoi polloi. It was two humans in an elevator and one was taking advantage of the other. Suddenly, celebrity did not matter.
Connecticut is 'supposedly' an attenuated version of New York, supposedly the more refined subsector (as is the East Side of Manhattan, the 'beginnig' of Connecticut as far as I am concerned). Where I was raised was near Waterbury (Wolcott) and that is just within the so-called NYC metropolitan area (90 miles from Grand Central Terminal). Most who view 'Connecticut' as part of New York are usually referring to Fairfield County (Bridgeport is the furthest from NYC within that county at 55 miles from Grand Central). So I make no real claims to 'blue blood' here even though we were still able to get the NYC TV stations when I was growing up. It is true, jp, that Fairfield County residents consider 'New York' to be where they live. In that county everyting revolves and evolves around New York. So I understand what all of you are saying. - David Lyga
