Carson, Ernie, & Ryan

Seen on the waiting for the Red Line to 95th at about 8:20 a.m., March 28th, 2012 

Here we have Carson, Ernie, and Ryan: boys in men’s clothing. At first glance they simply look like three businessmen waiting for the train. But look closer. Their hair is cropped too close to their heads, a poor attempt to conceal how messy it would be if they grew it out. Their casual smiles are actually grins; they are still giddy that they have Grown-Up-Jobs in a Big Office Building Downtown. Their dress shirts are too tight. They are overly-focused on their looks, betraying the fact that they have not yet settled into the monotony of office life. Pull t-shirts over their heads and put a can of Coors Light in each of their hands, and they’re still last year’s rowdy frat boys. They hope you can’t see it, but their camouflage is so very weak. 

Managed to fit in one more story before the end of the week. Hopefully things will slow down at work a little bit next week, or at least the week after that. We won trivia on Wednesday, which was amazing. Tonight I'm going to Steampunk Chicago's Clockwork Vaudeville at Ace Bar. It's the first time I've ever had to pull together a steampunk outfit. This should be interesting...
