I did, however, go out way before evening. I got the shul mail. I went to the library, where I reserved a graphic novel, and took out two new/new to me books. I also bought pill bags for Jonathan, and the Rav Solevitchek Yom Kippur machzor. I used the Rosh HaShanah one and liked it, so now I have the set.
The clerk in the Judaica shop wished me a "gut gebenched yore" - a "good, blessed year." I like that.
I also had lunch because I don't fast on minor fast days.
To do this, I took a subway one stop - well, supposedly one stop but I went two and had to go the other side and go one stop in the other direction. And I took a bus back, but that was annoying. I was waiting for the B68, which is a relatively fast bus. I saw FIVE B11s (not a particularly fast one) turn onto J before FOUR B68s showed up.
I am happy.
