can you speak up?

I’m on my train today, listening to my iPod, when some older gent sits next to me.

The first thing I notice is his overwhelming body heat. But never mind, my temp runs a little warm, too. A few minutes into staring out the window I realize this dude is talking to me.

Apparently he doesn’t need an audience, because I’m clearly not listening. So I turn, take out my headphones, and listen to how he made his train and walked 28 blocks in 32 minutes!

Congrats, kiddo. Then we had that awkward pause where I didn’t really want to engage the conversation…and he didn’t know what to do….so I yawned and feigned narcolepsy.
