With this being my first day back to work after nearly a 2-week vacation, I was already not completely woken up as I walked 5 blocks to the subway stop this morning.
I knew it was not going to be a good morning when I got onto the platform to find it completely PACKED with people waiting. I waited for a good 15 minutes, while express trains flew by on the outer track, and I patiently awaited a local train. Patiently, and very frigidly. Usually, I wouldn't have to wait more than 2-3 minutes, as that's the frequency in the morning rush.
The carefree evening trip home more than made up for it, as I was running late to a Board meeting, which I was hosting. Made it in 25 minutes!
