Obsevations of a Bored Subway Rider

This post is about random thoughts and opinions...it is not very politically correct so if you are a touchy person you might not want to keep reading.

(first observation has been removed...I really don't want to offend anyone who may be reading the blog)

I start to scan the crowd in the subway car for something else to occupy my time. And there sitting all pretty is this very good looking girl wearing 3 inch stiletto black pumps.

Now, normally this is not a big deal, after all just because I can't wear the things does not mean that I can't appreciate those who can. But on the day that they are predicting 15 cm of snow to fall this afternoon, this might not be the best footwear to have on. I don't get it...is there an underground parking lot attached to a subway station that I don't know about? Because even if you do drive to the station you still have to trek to your car in 15 cm of snow. So what's up?

I was a little jealous because I cannot and will not be able to wear such high and thin heeled shoes. The highest I go is 1.5 inches and this is even a little too high for moi. And now with having to go and pick up Isa and having to lug the stroller down a flight of stairs with baby strapped in I tend to wear flat shoes as it is safer for everyone.

These were my two observations on the way to work, there sure are some very interesting people on the subway every day.

I've never commented here before, but with regards to the waxed male eyebrows... I happen to know TWO men who sport a cleaner, more shapely eyebrow than I, they are both married to estheticians. And are perfectly straight...

I just wanted to point that out. I am by no means offended by your lack of "pc-ness"... However, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate this "0" for not offensive at all.

i love subway people watching. worse, my sister and i always talk about people in french, because we're pretty sure no one not at yonge/eglinton (you know, TVO headquarters) actually speaks it in the city. so we stare and we're rude. whoops.

don't you just hate carrying a baby-laden stroller down the steps? while people push past you, annoyed that you're so slow. honestly. grr.
