monday september 8

today i was sitting near the front of a fairly busy bus on the way to work. i was reading a novel and was so caught up in it that i didn't even notice that an elderly lady was standing near the bus's entrance, until another voice piped up, "this young man's offering you his seat," as a kid who looked about 14 politely stood up. i felt vaguely guilty the rest of the way, though i only looked up from my book for about three seconds.
