this and that

Casual observances from the train: this morning, none, really. I slept.

This afternoon, the noise from the train was laughter. As in the most obnoxious teenage-girl laughter which was ceaseless because, when a mother, a daughter and two of her girlfriends have a happy boy-toy to flirt with, everything is funny. To some people, anyway. The mother looks particularly devious; a little too much mary-jane for you ladies, I'd say. Thank you very much for getting off the train!

From the subway: from inside the darkness of a little conductor's cubicle stare two hard eyes from a head that bears a long, white beard and a dirty blue head-wrap of some kind. He looks at me as if I'm the one who's weird. OK, mohammed. Whatever.
