The reason I caught the train is because I drank
my milk straight
from the carton. The four seconds
for a cup would have meant the difference between slipping in neatly or the doors closing in front of me
If I sit really still and don't go to the restroom,
I will be invisible. Jack will not see me passing
and ask about my overdue task.
Here is my trick: walk my regular striding
pace and pick out the nearest male at the same speed or
more. He is my objective and I will trail him for
blocks until I take over, victorious. If he figures out
what I am doing he will get extra points; if he turns
or disappears before I catch up I lose.
