Today on the light rail, I experienced a homeless man rolling a joint. At first glance, I was confused by his crayon box full of grass...and then I thought to myself, that is not ordinary grass. He quickly shuffled around to hide what he was doing. He was so fast; I didn't get a chance to take a picture with my phone. It made my morning. A homeless man...ratty old clothes...hasn't shaved for months, maybe years...has a permanent dirt tan....and at 9:00 in the morning, he was about to get high.
The moral of the story: if you give $1 to a beggar, they'll buy drugs. And show them off on public transportation.
I'll take this opportunity to welcome you to "Today on the light rail...”. Every morning, I share with the twitter community the ridiculous antics that occur on public transportation. I decided it would be beneficial to the whole cyber community to partake in these experiences in more depth. I've seen everything from trannys to prophets on the light rail. Sure it's no New York subway, but that's what makes this even more interesting. I don't know what the motive behind the light rail was other than Houston trying to take a chance at being the home for the Olympics some day, but I do know that it wakes me up every morning and makes me realize that people are simply ridic. So enjoy my adventures...read this every day...maybe I'll get to add some pictures if I learn how to take them discretely.
