Three high school boys sit across the way talking about girls.
Two women sit beside me talking about men.
I’m only riding four stops.
The boys talk about X who has the ball in his court and doesn’t act.
The women talk about the boyfriend who has the ring but hasn’t proposed.
The boys have lost all respect for X.
The woman’s boyfriend is waiting until he’s ready.
The girl is obviously interested. Waste.
Still for some reason he’s told his parents and they want him to propose over the holidays. No pressure.
The boys go to school in Manhattan but a couple of them live in Brooklyn.
One of the women is staying on the train tonight, she has a sister who lives in Carol Gardens.
Have you heard of the music club by Union?
On court street. Near the movie theater.
And the Tiki bar. Great restaurants too.
By the bookstore?
What about the one that got 2 Michelin Stars? Can you walk up?
Not that one. That’s near Atlantic.
No, probably need a reservation.
The smaller one. Closer to Carol Gardens.
But the food really is excellent there. Expensive.
