I Should be Dancing

The sky was overcast and the air balmy as I walked to the train station. Adele's "Lovesong" on my ipod, my chocolate-painted lips moved along as she sang "No matter how far away...I will always love you."

I saw him walking towards me. His skin a smooth shiny Hershey bar. His full lips parted to reveal the same perfect white smile I remembered.

"Blair," I smiled back, "long time..."
He'd moved across town. I'd noticed and missed him.

It was a brief encounter yet it had soured my mood.  Maybe it was a reminder of what I've been missing.

I walked into the train station and noticed a guy that tried talking to me last week when I got Rocky groomed in the first car so I walked down maybe 4 or 5 cars away. As I sat, he came in and waved to me. I waved back but kept my face straight and my head down lost in thought over seeing Blair.

I heard a screeching noise and the guy was cleaning his teeth with his finger. Ewwwwwww. While I'd convinced myself to give him a chance if he asked in that moment whatever fleeting notion I had of doing so had dissipated.
Aggravation has been growing as i was on the train to go to Twin's job to give him money because he doesn't have any for lunch. He makes at least double what I do and it just annoys me that he hasn't been budgeting his money properly.

Whatever...I guess that's what friendship is about.

That's how the story goes....

I remember Blair...How gross for that guy to pick his teeth after he's been walking the city. I think you dodged a big bullet with him.
