Your Readin' That?
The scene: The "F" subway train in New York City.
I was commuting from the Borough of Queens to my job in Manhattan. I'd finished reading the morning paper and was saving it to bring to friends on the job. How do you save a newspaper on the subway? You sit on it.
A new commuter came in, saw the newspaper under my rear and asked the second most stupid question I've ever heard (someday I may tell of the first), "Are you reading that paper?"
I stood up, turned the page, sat back down on the paper and answered, "Yes."
