Lickity Split

On my way home from Salsa class, I got on the 2 train at 14th St. The train was a bit crowded but it cleared up a bit at 34th St. I managed to get a seat then. I must’ve been tired from working on Sunday, today’s running around at work, then dance class, because I failed to notice the odd young girl (teen? woman?). She was reading a thick book with the cover ripped off & the pages had water damage. She was eating a strawberry ice cream pop, in a disgustingly perverse sucking manner. Her hands were dirty with crusty nails.

That’s when her nauseating scent of stale cheap chocolate & unwashed body hit me. It was SO bad I to focus on my breathing to avoid throwing up. I don’t know what was worse: how crusty her hands were & the ice cream dripping on them, the way she was eating her ice cream, or the way she smelled. I couldn’t take it, I got off at 42nd St & waited for the next train. That type of smell sticks & I didn’t want to take that home with me.

Yellow Toenails

A while ago I was on the F train heading to my former Brooklyn home, when something caught my eye…a man’s severely yellow toenails. At first I thought he had a really bad case of nail fungus, which would’ve been gross of him to leave exposed. Men’s feet are ugly enough without fungal matter growing on them. But as I looked carefully at his toenails (I couldn’t help it, they were so yellow!!), I realized he had purposely painted them with a translucent yellow nail polish. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for men getting pedicures. If you’re going to wear shoes that expose your feet, you must get a pedicure. But what would possess this man to choose a color that would look horrible even on women’s toes?!

Gut Spillage

I don’t understand what some women consider to be cute, sexy, or their concept of a well put together outfit that suits their bodies. The woman pictured below obviously thinks she looked good in her horrible outfit. Apparently it’s “hot” to have gut spillage over ill-fitting low-rise jeans with visible panty lines. Maybe I didn’t get that memo, lol.

More Sally the Ragdoll Sightings

While still living in Brooklyn, there were more sightings of Sally the Ragdoll, during my morning commutes on the F train. If you remember my previous post, there was a lady who resembled the Nightmare Before Christmas character. Her outfits were always had a  patchwork or deconstructed look, similar to Sally the Ragdoll. Below is another picture I took of her…

New Posts in Progress, Stay Tuned…

I know I haven’t posted anything new recently, too much stuff going on, along with a spur-of-the-moment breakup with M.R. You will be seeing more posts on the 2 train, rather than the F or N trains, since I moved back to the Bronx. I have a couple of drafts in work that I hadn’t gotten the chance to finish & post. Stay tuned…
