it's known that i'm a people watcher

...and by people watching, i mean i will stare a stranger down... to the death.
this morning on my way to work, i was particularly fascinated by this smart-jewishy-looking guy who was wearing MIT sweatpants and consistently twitching in a tourette's kind of way.
suddenly the train stopped between stations.
oh shit. i'm going to be late for work.
i imagined being stuck here on the subway.
and not being able to get out.
until the autistic-math-genius-twitcher used his algebraic-savant-skills and came up with an unlikely, but successful escape plan.
i felt better about being on the train.
then it started moving and i was only 5 minutes late to work this morning.
