More transit friendships

A couple of university students get on. The girl recognizes a friend a few aisles down. They start talking. Then, the two boys accompanying the girls decide they should also chat, so they introduce themselves and get to know each other. Now there are two overlapping conversations going on over other passengers' heads, and yet another new friendship is born on the bus. Keep it up, and I might start believing in human interaction again!

Stand out

At the bus stop tonight: A woman in 4 inch fuchsia heels, matching her fuchsia hair. She has a barcode tattoo in her arm, a long sentence tattooed along the back of her leg, and is carrying a giant lion's head backpack!

Social media friendships

A young man is drawing, despite the many bumps in the road. Suddenly, a blue haired girl sits beside him. After a quick chat about life drawings and the minutiae of drawing hands, she asks for his name, finds him on Facebook, and leaves. And, just like that, a new friendship is formed.

Modern Romance

A couple is sitting together, she has her head on his shoulder, their arms are entwined... and yet, they're both looking at their iPhones, lost in their own virtual worlds.

A man is knitting. It looks like he might've knitted the tuque he's wearing as well. Cosy.

Corn off the cob

November 2

What's left of a cob of corn, just lying there next to my seat. Now I'm picturing someone eating corn on the cob on the bus, maybe with a bit of salt and butter?
