wednesday june 3

today i was sitting in a window seat in the subway when a woman entered and sat down in the seat next to me. having not expected her to sit there and preferring as little physical contact as possible in the subway, i hadn't properly positioned myself. as she sat down, i shifted my weight rather obviously towards the window, moving around for a second or two to keep my distance and get comfortable. it wasn't until she looked over at me and apologetically said "sorry" that i realized she was sort of overweight and likely self-conscious about it. my "oh it's fine!!" reply was probably a little too enthusiastic in an attempt to alleviate my guilt.
