It gets better.

I take the metro 2x every day Monday - Friday
I get on, hoping for a seat
(although usually I have to stand because it's so crowded)
Yesterday, however, I was one of the lucky ones.
So i'm automatically in a good mood because I don't have to carefully position myself between people like a human tetris.

Two stops right before mine a lot of people emptied out of the metro and this one lady (nice outfit, well-put-together makeup) gets on.


And then she raised her arm to grab the top bar.


And I saw something like this:

So Naturally, My face goes like this:

(thanks Corbis)

So i'm sitting there with "a little throwup in my mouth" and then....


I'm thinking, Holy Cow. Awkward. What do I do now.

So I acted like my contacts were bothering me.
I don't think I played it off very well either.

that's hilarious. thanks for the those images are stuck in my head :) i was cracking up at my desk!

i'm glad you will be able to use that list of prayers! i formated it in a word document, made it look really cute (which it won't allow you to do on the blog), printed it out and taped it in the front of my bible. have a great day!

Great visuals and hilarious mental picture of you playing with your contact. I do stuff like that ALL the time to avoid confrontation that I likely would bring on myself with my stares.

Sometimes I forget to shave my armpits when I wear sleeveless shirts(never that bad of course!)

i metro too... there's always some fun stuff to be seen. My favorite is sitting on the same train with the homeless guys who's getting warm in the winter. Yeah, you feel bad for him... but yeah, you throw up afterwards.

I've had a woman use the bathroom in her pants..

I've also had a weird man scream at everyone because he almost missed his stop.

I've also been on there with what looked to be full on terrorists. No not just ethnically - but they had camo bags and gear. it scared me.

Oh - and lets not forget the guy reading a gun/porn magazine either...

Crazy stuff in these parts.

Hope you have a toothbrush at work. I DO!

I wore a sleeveless sweater to work today and guess what I did in the middle of reading this post? Yep, I lifted my arm to make sure I was okey-dokey in that department.

OH MY GOSH! This is just too funny.
I think I wouldn't have been able to hide my shock either.
