Train Connection

On the train I saw an old woman staring at an old man.

After some time she said" Did the Giants win the game?"

The old man came to life. "Oh yes, they sure did. Sanchez pitched a great game!"

He went on and regaled her with the highlights of the game and his love for some of the new players.

He sat down next to her and continued to chat her up. A love connection was happening right before my eyes.

 I looked down and noticed neither of them had a wedding ring. A love connection was exploding right in front of me.
I felt like I was going to crap my pants with joy and happiness.  The soundtrack to Jerry McGuire  was playing in my head and the world seemed to slow down just to enjoy this wonderful moment.
Then she said "Im trying to read this book."

Silence for the rest of the train ride.

Side fact: The old lady really was reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  Who knew violent crime mysteries were popular amongst the old wrinklies.
