Subway Stories: That Ain’t No Venus Fly Trap

The morning started off quite nicely. I had a decent night’s sleep, a quality work out at the gym. Simon got his walk, and I was showered and ready for the day. I was feeling good. On the way to the train, it wasn’t too hot, nice breeze came along. Thursday was shaping up.

When my subway came–the good ole F train–I didn’t have to wait; got a seat …

When my subway came–the good ole F train–I didn’t have to wait; got a seat …

But squeezing in was a little bit of an issue. There was an empty spot in the corner of an L configuration, so I had to squeeze in between a middle-aged woman, and jackass in a suit, wearing sun glasses. Yep. That kind of a jackass. Okay. Fine.

Well, the woman gave me a dirty look as I tried to squeeze through (no, she didn’t move an inch to make it easier), and I’m-too-cool-school next to me, at one point, gave me a nice hard elbow. Grrrrrrr…. okay. I’m still not letting them get to me too much, just reading my paper, but still.

Along the trip the woman gave me a dirty look every time I turned a page or reached down to my bag, and Mr. Sunglasses gave me at least one other good bump.

Still … staying cool, feeling good. Just reading my paper, not going to let these wonks ruin my day …

And when I finally get off the train, glad to be away from them … I realize that my fly was open the whole time!!
