Scenes from the Subway: A True Story


It has been appallingly busy this week, and in all of the wrong ways too.  Happiness is a matter of occupying one’s normal state of being with a productive outlet until we are busy and lively and unconcerned with the self.  However we should all be mindful that having a task and having a purpose are two intensely different things.

So, with that in mind, I offer a short comic and a true story until I can offer more.  If you think you can translate it, you are welcome to try.  I just wrote it how I heard it but didn’t speak the language.

About You Monsters Are People

Wisdom, wonderment and weird for everyone.

    Gross! And hilarious. That’s too funny, why would someone ever do that?

  3. After seeing that argument, I can’t think of a more appropriate way to put an end to that business.

  4. I should have tried this in divorce court in 1984.

    Posky, you’re a scream. I wonder how people reacted – what they thought, had anyone ever seen that before, did anyone understand.

    I was just checking, and I don’t have enough reserve of snot to do that even if I were to have a confrontation with the offender. Well, not now I don’t.

      The target had this shocked and angry look on his face and a couple of people were obviously grossed out. I heard a guy go “Awww..jeeze” but most people ignored it.

      I, however, had a decent sized smile on that I was trying to keep from becoming a full on grin.
