Misery: Exhibit A

Woman A gets on the train and climbs up to the second level.

She greets woman B – someone she obviously knows from work – and then sits down several seats away from her. She opens a book and begins reading.

Woman B begins talking to woman A about woman C who “talked my ear off all day.”

Woman A acknowledges woman B with a smile and a nod, but doesn’t say anything.

Woman A begins reading again.

Woman B gets up and moves to the seat next to woman A and proceeds to talk her ear off all the way home.

Woman A nods and smiles but doesn’t say much, holding her book hopefully in her lap.
I am listening to: Metallica - My Friend of Misery
I am reading: Nothing
And I am: Not an empty can

Sounds like Woman A, has a much bigger set of gonads on a blog, than on a train!

How does it feel being wrong two days in a row, Dilf? I hate to break this to you, but I am not Woman A. It was an observation I made from across the train. Rough week for ya, eh? Get some rest and come back fresh for us Monday, tough guy.
