Good morning. I’m on the 7:20AM into the City. A crowded platform availed me to the fifth car from the engine. In my continued attempt to understand my fellow passengers throughout the train, I have made it a point to sit in different cars.
Since this is a talking car, I am privy to a conversation between Lance Armstrong, Timothy Leary, and Joachim Phoenix. Lance and his wife are excited that their youngest is in middle school and that all of their kids are going to a private, religious school. He is a church elder, his wife is a Parent Volunteer and member of the laity. They were in the teacher contract negotiations. The three men are going into war stories of parent-teacher-admin conversations. Timothy becomes the old chestnut of “substitute got fired and banned because s/he had the children read from a secular book, “Of Mice and Men” or “Catcher in the Rye” or something. Joachim is talking about how school administrators force Parents to ask the questions about management of the school instead of being transparent. Riveting conversation.
Jimmy Durante is reading the Wall Street Journal. Today’s headline is about “Biggest Changes in a Decade Greet Students in Bathroom”. He is sitting next to an elvish woman, asleep, with academic looking glasses. She is wearing a white blouse and a corporate skirt-suit thing that was more fashionable during the Hillary as FLOTUS days.
Also here are FLOTUS Hillary Clinton (chewing gum), Ray Walston, a very handsome young Vietnamese gentleman, and Scott Caan. All are armed.
Happy Tuesday, safe travels.
