27 Jul

I was wandering around Manhattan looking for a place to wait for Brett to finish footy training and came across a ‘tea parlour’ with this little guy in the window. Thinking the cafe must have had an Aussie connection, I went inside to indulge in some tea and macaroons and asked the guy behind the bar about the koala.
“It fell out of the tree outside in a storm last week” was his answer.
I thought he was surely having a lend of me, so I made a joke about it being a drop bear. He stared at me blankly, obviously not aware of the urban myth. He reiterated that it really did just land on the doorstep, so they put it in the window hoping someone would recognise they had lost it. When no one came forward they’ve now adopted it as their lucky mascot and christened it Oscar, after Oscar Wilde. Only in NYC.
