Does anyone else notice that this guy looks a little lacking in the oxygen department?????????????????????? You see how nobody else seems bothered by this person?
I notice people, maybe it is because they freak me out. I notice how people interact with others and people who are sick, and people who look like they are at the end of a rapidly fraying rope. I especially, notice, when I see dead people. Y’all think I’m a little phobic about sick people, you haven’t seen me at a funeral. I am TERRIFIED of corpses. Which is why I am standing at the very back of the train like this:
To be fair, I think the person in the picture is alive and very well rested after a day on the train.
Trying to stay busy and occupied, I did have a great conversation with other people about parenting done right. Well done parents, well done!
I think I notice all kinds of things people don’t. Like when I’m sitting near someone (this morning) and I’m minding my own business and I’m not freaking out or having a panic attack, and I’m playing my math nerd game on my phone, but then I realize your very deformed hand is less than six inches away from my leg… and it looks plastic but has a scar… so in some way or another it is real, but more importantly it is VERY VERY close to me and I don’t know what to do… and so I’m not being mean but I am now having a mild panic attack, and while I try to smile and make it look like I didn’t notice… it is a little hard when my face actually looks like this:
The life with anxiety on the train. It’s not that I’m mean, it is that you scare me.
