Subway Envy


You have to admire some of the poeple on the subway. Maybe not the ones who are throwing up on the back seat ... but some of them. Ok and like you don't HAVE to but you could ... if you would ... and you should ...


I used to think it was a rule that super heroes with special powers had to wear identifying costumes. For one thing, it makes it much easier for the toy manufacturers to make their toys more life like, AND for another thing (that's two things if you are keeping track)it helps us to know we are in the presence of awesomeness and for another thing (3 fingers now) so that we are not be too hard on them for wearing leotards. But nooooo that is not the case. Not ALL superheroes with superpowers are easily identifiable ... think about moms.

They have eyes in the back of their heads and can yell louder than any megaphone enhanced effort. They can do 83 things at once and still shoulder all the blame their kids heap on them. They are like teflon cause they can be spit on, thrown up on, pooped and peed on and still not get some pandemic type disease and die. They don't have batteries but they still keep on going ...more than the energizer bunny AND they know 5,382 things to do with hamburger. And you think your mom is lame right? Ok are you following me now?

Well some of the people on the subway with you are actually superheroes with superpowers without any identifying characteristics. They are like pie without icecream, you think, "oh nothing special there, just the same old darn pie," but then you eat it and it is icecream pie! (Maybe I mean cake ... never mind.) You have to watch them carefully. NOT when they are watching you, but when they look away ... just in case they are not a superhero at all and actually that stranger all those safety books at school warn you about.

Like there is one lady on the train who scratches herself in places we don't wanna know she itches, picks her teeth, does her nails, yells into her cell phone, takes the curlers from her hair, changes from her jammies into her work clothes (to be fair both outfits have bunnies on them) and everyone looks at her like "ewwww ... how rude." (but not when she is looking at them) And I was going to "ewww" too until it hit me that she has the most magical superpower of them all ....

SHE can make all of us disappear!! (except I don't think she can use that as a defense against the trauma we all incurred of seeing her nude in public)  How else could you explain her doing all of that.  She thinks she is on the train all by herself and she is so good at it everyone else wishes she was on the train all by herself.  But she is sooo happy.  She doesn't frown or "eww" at other people.
So I learned a very valuable lesson from that Super Woman .... We would all be a lot happier if we could just make other people disappear or at least turn the volume down so we did not hear so much "eww" - ing.
I am going to make that into a Pinterest Poster.
