Yesterday I get onto the subway and miracle of all miracles I get a seat. Like a good subway goer, I settle in, after knocking the fellow beside me with my bag, and begin to look around. Then I notice buddy at my side, smells kind of nice, but is yawning his head off trying to read freakanomics. So I say, “Boring book huh.” And boom a conversation follows…the books he’s read, the books I’ve read, the places I’ve lived, the places he’s lived, and then this:
Me: “It’s funny how you take the subway to work every day and you never meet the same person. My mum takes the GO and she has tons of GO friends.”
Him (dead serious:) “Well I take the subway from Sheppard to Union, and the funny thing is I do see the same people, and then I see the same people get off, and then I see the same people walk around at lunch, and I’m starting to seriously wonder if I am in some low budget film and I got the shitty repeat extras.”
Me: Convulsing in Laughter
Him (thoughtfully): Your much prettier than the normal extra's
Me: That’s because I’m a leading lady….
