I see many of the same people at the streetcar stop all the time and a few stand out:
- The bike-riding guy who wears pointy white boots tucked into his pants. He dresses normally except for the boots, which look like they were made for walking. Maybe when he gets to work and fixes his pants, it all works out for him.
- The teen with super long bangs who’s always carrying a book. I get the sense that he’s a kind young man — he’s very polite.
- The otherwise well put-together woman who always seems to wear her pants too short. I think she must get her pants measured when she’s wearing low shoes. She should really bring her heels when she gets them pinned for hemming. Or else she buys them that way. It’s entirely possible that she thinks her pants look fantastic.
- The most interesting people by far are the buggy ladies. They travel with a bright red dog buggy and it’s quite a production when they lift it into the streetcar. For quite some time I wasn’t sure that they had a dog in there — the flaps are usually down. But one hot day they let the little dog out and it sat nicely on one of the women’s laps. One of the women has fondness for bejeweled shoes and fancy outfits, while the other is a jeans and runners type. Both seem to love the pet and worry about its safety on public transport — it is really tiny and obviously quite spoiled.
Like this but bright red…
