My night at the New York Philharmonic must have started something because I recently had the chance to turn an everyday errand into something pretty grand! A visit to Staples Flagship New York City Store in Manhattan to buy replacement Printer Ink Cartridges resulted in me being celebrated by a 20 piece orchestra! Before you say 'just another day in New York' I have to tell you it was pretty out of the ordinary!

I like to stock up on the combo pack and just before I have to open the last combo pack I go buy three more so I never run out when I need to print something important! This is the one I normally select:
