Tales from Transit #41

Today on the metro, I watched some strange gal sitting by herself. She was looking down staring at a photo in her hand. The photo was a postcard of the Shroud of Turin.

About every 40 seconds, she would kiss it.

Is it bad manners to make out with the Big J on public transportation?

Um, skaterdude123, can you try one of Canada's two official languages, s'il vous plait?

Um, N@: I don't know about Montreal, but in Ottawa, anything goes on public transportation. (Whew! I did type the L in "public"!)

Have a good night, and don't drink the water!

Last night, Scarborough (of course) dude played heavy metal air drums all the way home. With no headphones on...just the voices in his head.

Thanks Rick - Flea is fine for now.
She was happy and chasing after Chachi/Reginald T. Farnsworth last night on her spindly little leg.

I am checking out surgery/non-surgical options right now just to see what's out there.

I just wet my pants from laughing so hard.

Thank goodness I don't have to ride the Metro anymore.

Marisa: As someone who rides public transit, although in Ottawa, not Montreal, I'm glad you don't ride Metro anymore too, if you have a tendency to wet your pants.

Only if you use tongue!!!

What if you speak in tongues with Big J on public transit? That allowed?

SkaterDude, a shroud is something you wrap yourself in. Some people wrap themselves in ignorance.
The Big J was wrapped in the Holy Shroud.
Here endeth the lesson.

Amen, JB, amen.

Now, SkaterDude, go ye forth and multiply.

God forbid.
