why i love living in cities…

or, what I saw on the way home from work this evening:

* Old Chinese guy, on his stoop, smoking a cigarette and dancing to really bad old country music

* Young woman, letting the little kid next to her play with her iPod. (It ended badly, since his sister wanted to see, too, and…well, you know how that goes.)

* Two guys sitting across from one another–one young, black, track jacket and sneakers; the other middle-aged, white, suit and tie–both participating in the very human activity of nodding off on the bus.
