Things that happen to me on the M4

Have you ever noticed how the crowds on the NYC buses are different from the people who usually use the subway? For one, they are chattier. On my way to work this morning, I was on the bus, reading a book, plugged into my ipod, and minding my own business as usual. When a man sitting behind me calls my attention and starts talking to me. He says something along the lines of, you’re so beautiful, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I noticed you, blah, blah, blah, and then “It’s my 60th birthday tomorrow, and would like to invite you to my party. Do you have a paper and pencil to write down the address?”
I paused for a minute to think and decided to be polite. So I took out a pencil and paper and wrote it down, while I listened to his story about his father dying on his 40th birthday, and how life goes by so quickly, and him getting tearing on his birthday because of this, and so on. He turned out to be an artist and he will be displaying his art at his party, which sounded quite interesting actually. But if you’re wondering if I will be attending, the answer would have to be no. I’ve done my share of NYC craziness in my time, but this one seems like a little too much, don’t you think?

  1. That was you? I’m so embarrassed now. That’s the last time I talk to a beautiful woman on the M4… :)And with respect to your question from the previous post, the answer is “no”. It sounds like you have your list of “wants” just about right.

  2. i knew it would be joe, i knew it.haha. yes, i feel like i always have bus incidents as well. once, this old man kept insisting that we were on the bus to atlantic city. unfortunately, it was just me and him on the bus and he was relentless.

  3. You should go to his party with a very handsome date… he didn’t say you couldn’t go with someone, did he? I think it would be very interesting to see what kind of art does he do.
