how to know you're not in manhattan anymore

When there's a gun display in the toy aisle of the drugstore. Clients often tell us that New York is a world apart from the rest of the country, and I was recently reminded of the truth of this in North Carolina when I stumbled upon a wall of toy weaponry while hunting for toothpaste. It would have parents in my neighborhood up in arms, so to speak.

Seriously. I'm from NC/live in NYC as well, I am always fascinated when I visit and see what "sells" vs. up here. Always a delight.

Thanks for dropping by, price. Funny how states not too far apart can actually be different worlds, isn't it?
