i had to be in rockville this morning so i rode the metro for the first time in a minute. i swear it was like a scene out of the stepford wives. everyone looked asleep with their eyes open. including me. i mean no utterance, no conversation, no eye contact, nothing. yup - just how i remembered it years ago when i used to ride daily.
so i soon became preoccupied with a woman who stood and the four men who sat in the seats around her. no, she wasn't old. yes, she seemed pretty healthy; she had all of her limbs. but i still waited. and waited. i just wanted to hear someone ask, "you want to sit down?" they were old enough to know better. they weren't young knuckleheads. 2 had on suits and the other two looked like they were headed to work too. but not one offered their seat.
chivalry is so sexy on a man. i was disappointed. but smiled after thinking how i know my man would have offered his seat.
