Phoning It In

Weather as I call it: Overcast with just an orange glow of where the sun should be this morning
Level of commute annoyance (scale of 1 to 10): 2
Feared for my life: Naw


I got to the bus stop early today and waited around. None of the regulars showed up, but an older woman who sometimes takes the bus in the morning came to the stop at 7 o'clock.

On the bus, there was a man with a hand truck. Yes, he had a hand truck and he had it full of boxes and assorted other stuff all secured with bungee cords. He had parked himself in front of the back door, and I took a seat near the front to avoid the scene.

He got off at Malden station where the Boston Now hawker was not so much singing today as he was shooting Boston Now bullets at people as they walked by.

  • Boston Now!
  • Boston Now!
  • Boston Now!

I think he was phoning it in today.

The Orange Line was delay free. Peeps, we should rejoice.
