The Sanitation Team aka pooperscoopers came strolling along and the crowd burst out with applause.
The more we applauded, the more they hammed it up for us.
Good job, fellas. Good job.
Here are my suggestions for parade success...
We arrived at Central Park West and 67th at 6am and we were some of the last people to get a spot on the front row.
Dress in layers and don't forget your feet.
Amber's toes were a bit frosty in the 30 degree chill.
Drink at your own risk.
You will want to drink hot coffee and lots of it because it's early and it's cold.
But then you'll probably need a restroom and those are scarce.
Either get happy about using a port-a-potty or make friends in the hour and half long line at Starbucks.
Go with friends.
It's way more fun to spot RuPaul when you're with people you love.
Take your camera.
Make brunch reservations for after the parade.
The parade finished at our spot (CPW & 67th) around 12noon and we had reservations for 12:30pm.
Clear your schedule for the morning and the afternoon.
You will be happy and full and you will want to take a nap. Trust me.
