Tube

In London whether you like it or not we are a bit paranoid ,at least I’am. Not that I’m a scardy cat but I do think about how I will react to different incidents.

This morning ,when a good crowd goes to work , I took the tube at Clapham South as usual. As per routine I scanned the people on the carriage, I always do, remembering that someone spend long time studying people from the tube and then wrote a book. Of course there isn’t any available seat, I will have to wait until Stockwell.

Leaning against the screen next to the sliding doors while listening to very loud music,my attention which was in Lala land start to focus in the chap opposite me reading the Koran or so I thought , maybe was any other book in arabic, he was reading aloud to himself (so not so laud).Therefore because I’m human and whether or not I like it, a bit prejudice I started to plan in my head for the worst scenario. They were 2 alternatives,that I had contemplated basicly one he might blow everyone up so we caput or he might produce a knife and start to stab us all.With the latter I was working out that if I put my bag (Full of standard ladies bag things)I might be able to stop the knife going through and that might buy the ladies who were wearing white linen( very inconvenient colour for the situation going on in my head), After a while of how I will defend myself and help people strategies, I looked up and realise there are far more scary men and women in here that this poor bloke which I’m judging, at the end of the day, it is Friday and is the day of worship for some religions. and they need to pray at some point during the day.

Maybe next week I will analyze the man with camouflage gear and all his murders(I think he looks like a serial killer)

Now the metal machine is in Embankment (do I get down and walk, “nah… I stay on til L Square”).

 

There are plenty of books about the underground which are very interesting.

Nothing…

Sometimes is good to write about nothing…

Loads of things had happen since my last post. Mainly to do with family, now trying to arrive to the other side of the drama and put a bow on it.

Although very happy to have move to our own place (renting, but still own place without other people but my husband and 2 children), guilty that I can not  care for people who I love. well enough of this nonsense, I already emotionally drain.

Lately to escape going on and on about one topic, I have started to observe people, not that I don’t do it all the time but I’m spending extra minutes thinking i the superfluous things that concerns(or maybe not) that individual. Such as the clothe combination they wear.

This one puzzle me the other day, someone that try to emulate Tom Cruises style of jeans( not flare or straight enough )and Cuban shoes, sadly this shoes were a cross between a Chelsea boot and the style mention above, of course the trouser were high waist and light blue. , I gather you get the picture is like men who wear suits or chinos they don’t really know how to wear denim. They buy them short or they use the belt at the wrong height… What ever it was wrong.
