Focus On What Now?

It appears I need a vacation. A rest. A few moments without any human beings fucking things up for me. It appears I'm in the same place as a very smart 5-year-old, I feel like I'm losing my mind.

Just a little bit, not to worry, I'm not going all Lisa Bright and Dark on anyone.

It's just that today the train was very crowded and I did get a seat finally and was resting my eyes when there was buzzing and frantic talking and it seemed that a woman had passed out. The authorities were called which means that the train needs to stop until the passenger is confirmed to be well or at least cared for by professionals. Usually I would stay on the train 2 more stops, change across the platform and get off at the next stop and walk my 2 blocks to work. When the train stopped at the next station, though, I got off because I did know that the train would be in the station for a bit. Then I wandered down the platform a bit. I couldn't decide what to do. It was too far to walk. Both the express and the local were stalled in the station and crammed full of people. I couldn't figure out my next step, just aimless wandering, and the woman was off the train and standing and a nurse had been nearby so she was helping.

Baffled. For like 3 minutes.

For anyone who has not guessed this, the answer to what to do is STAND HERE UNTIL ANOTHER TRAIN COMES YOU IDIOT!

So I did.

On Saturday, my friends, I am going to sleep the entire day away and I will love every minute of it.

  1. Stand here alone until another train comes.
    I like this as a personal manta very much right now.
    Thank you.
    Its profound.
    I will stand. And wait for another train.
    See? You are not the only five year old in the mix.
