Why don’t they just officially change the name to subway pains?
“The pains were so slow tonight!” “How long did you have to wait for your pain?” “I had to take 4 pains to get home!”
Ahhhh, how could I forget the Sunday Night Follies in the subway system? Watching it say the train is coming in 2 minutes, for 8 minutes and saying 1 minute, then disappearing off the board and never showing up. Delightful.
Perhaps that was a ghost pain, for the part of my life amputated and thrown away while waiting for pains.
