Brown Sugar Oatmeal Muffins

What do you do when you’re excited? Do you scream in random outbursts? Do a little dance (and then slip because you are wearing socks on a hardwood floor)? Fidget non-stop?

I happen to do a combination of all of those. Apparently from a young age anyone could tell that I was excited because my hands wouldn’t stop shaking.

I ordered a salmon burger and then watched businessmen and women eat whole lobsters while wearing suits and chuckled a little as a waited for my order. As soon as we got our food, we found a nice spot on the Highline and chowed down. Now there are two possible scenarios that could’ve happened:
