Each Friday, [tweetthis]I post a photo and a bit of flash fiction. I keep the words brief because, you know, “a picture is worth a 1,000….” [/tweetthis]http://www.theblacktortoise.com/1000-words-worth-2017-8/To find out more click here.
I took this photo in my commute to my new job at Adello Biologics. Dismal weather made me feel a bit melancholy as a travel by the Metra into Chicago. The conversation is a blend of two cell phone calls on the Green Line; the second leg of my commute. This is exactly why I don’t mind a bit when people talk on their phones in public. Stories are everywhere.
“This f**king train’s goin’ nowhere fast.”
“I just called to say have a good day at school. Can I talk to the kids?”
“This conductor must be 100 years old. I mean he’s f**king slow.”
“I wish I was home by now.”
“Hey fish face.”
“You be home before me. I should be at 45th now and I’m at f**king McCormick.”
“Why you in a grumpy mood.”
“My ninth nerve is jumping. I should be home havin’ breakfast.”
“I love you.”
“You be home before me this time.”
“Why you still on the line?”
