I’m on the 6 train heading home sometime after 2:30 in the morning on Sunday. I had just come from seeing my friends Dayglow play the last show at CBGB’s Downstairs Lounge. I’m sitting in the corner of the train listening to music when I noticed the 3 people sitting across from me.
The 3 people consisted of a male & two females. The man was sitting in between the two women. The blonde to my left had her eyes closed for most of the ride. I assume she was taking one of those phony naps. The eyes are closed but you are not really napping.
The behavior that struck me as odd is how her two friends would glance at her. They seemed to have a routine in place. The first thing they would do is glance at her. They followed this up by turning to look at each other. The routine ended by them almost chuckling.
I for some reason was sitting there quite curious as to why they repeatedly engaged in this routine until they got off. The most fun for them had to be when she looked through her pocketbook for something. This was followed by her “napping” again.
People do the strangest things sometime…………
