Bus Report #115

I am in Boston for the Thanksgiving holiday. Last night I was hanging out with The Professor. We took a bus to Cambridge to hear a friend of The Professor's, a very talented singer named Rose Polenzani. We huddled together in the bus stop, trying to keep warm. Finally, a 66 Harvard Square bus drove up. We sat towards the back. At one point, we noticed a rather disgusting-looking man sitting a few seats up from us. He had a few duffel bags with him, greasy, stringy hair pulled back in a ponytail. He was creepy.
I saw him take a small cigarette lighter size container out of his pocket. he tapped it against the crook of his hand, between his thumb and forefinger, then lifted his hand to his face and sniffed deeply. He did this a couple of times.
The things you see on the bus.
