Commuting isn’t fun for anybody. Day in, day out, go this way, go that way. But my last few days have been particularly horrific.
1. Yesterday morning, I am on the bus, on my way to my T stop. It is a usual crowded morning bus, and I am standing near the windshield.
And the bus approaches a stoplight. At this stoplight, like many of its brethren stoplights, Direction North/South goes, then Direction East/West goes, and then the pedestrians go. We are Direction N/S, and the light just turns red as we approach. So then Direction E/W goes. And then it is time for the pedestrians to go, but the bus driver apparently doesn’t know this and starts going. Not just that inch you do when the light is about to turn, he actively begins moving. BUT WAIT there are pedestrians! BRAKE BRAKE!
So the bus driver brakes hard, and everyone goes flying forward. Including me. And I am basically at the front. I am off balance and I go flying and but for the huge bearded hippie dude who is much sturdier than I am, I would have gone through the windshield. So thank you huge bearded hippie dude.
2. Today on my subway ride home, someone threw up in my car. Like, just threw up and left.
I hate vomit. I hate it hate it hate it whether it comes from me or someone else.
I almost threw up as well. God the smell. It was horrible.
I can only wait to see what fun tomorrow will bring.
