So Much Love

I left work on the earlier side (6-ish) last night, to meet the Boy for a romantic home-cooked dinner at my place.

The trip home on the subway turned out to be one of the scariest trips I've ever taken.

First of all, the subway platform was so crowded that I had to let 4 (yes, FOUR) trains go by without even getting on, because I couldn't even get through the crowd.

Who knew that the commute home on Valentine's Day would be so frightening?

When I finally did get on a train, I was pushed so hard, I felt like I was being punched in the stomach.

Two men almost got into a fist fight because one accused the other of shoving. They glared at each other.

Each had one fist up and ready to fight, and the other clutching a bunch of flowers and a plush teddy bear.

I would have laughed, except that I was sandwiched between two people, each with a bunch of Mylar balloons, who both looked at me angrily like they wanted to smother me with them.

One man had a gigantic heart-shaped box of chocolates that he held up combatively, ready to use as a weapon against anyone who got too close.

I was truly surrounded by love.
