This lady on the train sat next to me and started talking. She was out of breath or something. She was real excited, and when she kind of banged into my side as she sat, she said excuse me, and I said it was okay.
She then commented on the weather and how nice it was and how everything was looking up.
She then said something about an exciting opportunity and how something big was going to happen.
I felt weird, and I was trying to memorize a script about rich people that hate abortions. I was afraid she was going to ask, "What are you reading?"
I also figured she was an actor, getting real excited about a part she got.
Since she wouldn't stop talking to me, I asked her, "So what is it? What is the exciting thing?"
To my surprise, her answer had nothing to do with an acting part that was going to make her big. Instead, she stared out the window, and explained, vaguely, something about service and . . . community? She looked like she drank two pots of coffee a day, and just got out of the gym.
I said, "I don't know what any of that means."
She said, "Well, one day you just might." And then she got off at Sedgwick.
Do you think she was opening like a Subway franchise or something?
I really hope I never, ever see that lady again.
