ride that lonely train

This is one of those new york things that just doesn't happen.

Never have I had an ENTIRE subway car to myself.  Ever.  It's probably even stranger for me to admit that it's one thing I have always wished for.  But I imagined I would at least be with a friend and we could act ridiculous, play around on the poles and take LOTS of silly pictures.

But instead I sit here all by myself.  Wondering if someone will hop on at the next stop and disrupt my solitude.  Or worse, imagining the next person to step on will be someone I would not want to be stuck in a small space with... I'm thinking of that Jodie Foster movie, The Brave One.  But as a New York woman, always making my way around the city alone, I decided It would be a good idea to never watch that movie!

It took over two years for me to end up all alone in a subway car, will it take that long again?  I just hope it could happen at more convenient opportunities.  Like the time my cousin wanted to show me a few of her pole dancing tricks.  Haha, don't get carried away, she's not a stripper.  She's actually a very conservative, petite, soon-to-be lawyer who happened to get REALLY into S Factor's pole dancing classes.  And you can't blame the girl.  It's supposed to be a great workout.  I've always wanted to try it, but I'm so spastic that it would probably be completely embarrassing.

I've now had to transfer to the 4 train and I'm no longer alone :(

Hopefully it happens again when I can enjoy it in good company!
