The Paper Guy Redux

Commute was good today. Happy Friday.

Here's the story I was alluding to yesterday. It's a bit out of scope but stick with me.

Back when I first started this blog, there was a guy that I passed every day on the way to work. He stood at a busy intersection and sold newspapers to people sitting in their cars waiting for the next light change. I dubbed him, "Paper Guy"...how original. I noted his outfit with each passing day, using him as a gauge of the weather. If he had sunglasses on, it was sunny. If he had no coat on, it was warm. If he had a hat on, it was cold. You get the picture.

Since I changed jobs, I haven't seen this guy...until a few weeks ago.

Here's where the story gets out of the scope of the blog...I saw him on the T ride home. (Slap my wrist now.) I was sitting there, minding my own business, and I look up and see him sitting right across from me. Whoa. Paper Guy is right there.

Pretty sweet -- small world and all that -- I guess -- Fun coincidence at least.
