Wow, this morning on the Metro was so much better this morning. But I did not get my free ride home that they advertised. I got jipped out of my 3.65...But I'll let them have it. Maybe that can help them fix the air conditioning on the cars. I rode home hot 3 days in a row.

More METRO Antics

As I arrived to the Greenbelt Metro Station at 7:30, I was elated that I made it to the Metro early. I walked to the platform to see about 200 people waiting for the train. There was a problem at the West Hyattsville Station. So once the train arrived I waited patiently for the train to stop and the doors to open. As the doors opened, I was pushed by a mob of people to get in the train. I sat in the first seat I saw. I looked around the train, there was not one seat open. As we pulled into College Park, it looked just like Greenbelt. So as we went through the rest of the stops more people filled the train until we stooped at Columbia Heights. At this time, there is a short, chubby lady standing in front of me, and as the people squeezed in the train her face was very displeased.

She says to me " I know these people are not trying to push me, I'm gonna push back in a minute." She proceeded to push back as the doors closing announcement came on. One good shove and a small Asian woman and a tall slim man were pushed off and the doors slammed in their face. We laughed all the way to Gallery Place. I needed that laugh this morning.

Green Chaser

One of my famous observations....I was riding on metro this afternoon and I was pooped. I nodded for a short spell. Thankfully I was unable to get into a deep sleep because I am a light sleeper, but for a quick second, I was extremely tired. I was awaken by one of my friends calling me on my cell. As I said, I'll call you when I get off the train, I paned the view of my fellow train riders. Out of about 30 people on the car with me, 75% of them were either nodding or they were just plain asleep.

Here is the deep thought...WAIT...We were all coming home from work! There were people of all walks of life on the train with me. I was in the company of Nurses, soldiers, construction workers, office workers, senior citizens and students. The only section of folks that I mentioned that were all wake were the two senior citizens that were just leaving home to go and play bingo. Out of all of the previously named folks, a good percentage of people, like me, were in the sleepy trance. What does that say about the society? We are all so focused on chasing the green that folds, we are not getting enough rest. The invention of the television, video games, the large homes we can't afford etc. are all to blame for the lack of sleep and rest in America. This is only my humble opinion. I know that I was up late, watch a made for TV movie staring every one's favorite former DIVA Delta Burke. The movie was horrible but I could not stop watch, now that is mind control!

So I say all that to say, please pray that the TV Producers add a subliminal message that can actually help us, for the better, not to go to the dark side. I wish I could say that I am going to protest TV, but, I am also under control.......Please help us...
