When you take the train every morning you get to see the same people everyday. That could be good , that could be bad. I don't mind seeing friends on my way home from work , but when I am going to work in the morning it is just to early to say much more than "good morning".
When I was new to New York I used to always look around at people and wonder what their lives were like. Now I am less intrigued . I just hope the subway acrobats don't board my train and that a fat person does not sit next to me. If only my train ride was boring.
Once I was on a train minding my own business when suddenly this couple stood near me. It instantly smelled like a latrine. I thought that its a shame that young people are not attending to hygiene anymore. When I glanced at the end of the car I realized where the odor was emanating from. A homeless woman had just did her business all over herself and her seat. It was repulsive. I regretted thinking that the teenagers had rank body odor.
