Instead, I get to travel twice a day on an overcrowded train filled with smelly, sweaty, crazy and/or obnoxious people. It’s that much more interesting when we get stuck in an underground tunnel for several minutes at a time…
There are, however, a few things that bring a reluctant smile to my face during my (mis)adventures in commuting:
– The entertainment: Today it was an accordion player doing his own rendition of “Satisfaction” – fun stuff
– The subway staff who announce the next stop over the intercom. I swear, some of them are secretly voice-over actors – they sound like that movie trailer guy who was in that Geico commercial too. Some mornings they really crack me up, they take it so seriously.
