NYC: Let Me Read My Book and Pretend I Don't See What Is It You're Doing List

When you live in New York City, 9 times of 10 you're going to have to ride some form of mass transportation ...And if you aren't,then this is probably irrelevant for you to read any further... For anyone who hasn't rode a subway in New York, believe me there are some things you just don't want to see..And this is why all 100% of the people on the train either look like they are on the way to hell or engulfed in some "great" novel...Why you may ask? BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY and you have to pretend like some stuff that's going on is not even there... like you don't see that drug addict right in front of you ---taking a shit..(think this is haven't seen nothing yet)... So if you're a New Yorker or someone riding a subway...Here is 5 good books you could pretend or actually read while someone screaming gibberish rolling on the subway floor in front of you.

Monster Man said...

I quite enjoy the freakshow but that's me - Plus I been told by others I can give off a very scary vibe - but that can lead to a whole host of other issues. But then again most Monsters are really just hiding in plain sight.

So did you miss the Monster Man?
