Seen on the Purple Line to Linden at around 8:10 a.m.
I like mornings, even when they're gross like today. I'm waiting for the train, and I eat a banana in five bites--one, two, three, four, five. It took me a long time to learn to count to five. I like bananas. Bananas are my favorite.
Anyway, it took me a long time to count to five because I just like letters more. But I'm eight now. I can count way higher than five and I know lots of words, too. Well, I was eight. I guess now I'm a grown-up. One time at the park I was on the swings, and I was swinging faster and faster, and I was going really high, and then I jumped off the swing and tried to fly like a bird! I wasn't a good flyer, but when I landed I was all grown up.
I went home for dinner, because Mom always said every day, "Be home for dinner by six!" But when I came in she started screaming like the lady in that psycho movie that Dad wasn't supposed to let me watch and she told me to get out of the house. I was really sad.
But then I realized I could have adventures like in The Boxcar Children! But I didn't have a boxcar like them. So I walked to my favorite store, which is Toys 'R' Us. And I asked if I could help put the stuffed animals on the shelves. I like stuffed animals, especially the bunnies. So now I get to go to Toys 'R' Us every day, and I put lots of toys on the shelves, not just stuffed animals. And sometimes they give me money, too, which is good because being a grown up is kinda hard sometimes. Lots of times I go back to my house and spy in the windows and look at Mom and Dad. I miss them.
I see this woman almost every day on my commute to work, and she always reminds me of a kid. Not in a bad way, though. She just always seems cheerful.
