Today on the lightrail, I experienced something I have never experienced before: strangers talking to one another. *gasp*
I don't know what somebody threw in the Houston water this morning, but people were abnormally friendly on the lightrail. Randos talking to randos...homeless people chatting it up with Med students. Metro workers talking to metro commuters. It was like a scene in a movie about a perfect world.
You may not see this as a big deal but it is...especially when every day I take public transportation and usually am pushed/shoved/mocked/ridiculed (yeah I typically don't share most of those stories..). Today I couldn't keep up with all the conversations going on, that and people were being genuinely nice. For once, I was not the only person having a random conversation with a stranger.
Good for you, Houston.
Moral of the story: Here's to you, Mr. Sunshine, you make public transportation a better place.
p.s. I drove to work yesterday because I woke up late..so no post. :/
