Editor’s Note:  This guest post submitted by Amanda Green.  No, this isn’t the new, softer side of SUBWAYblogger.  But it is a nice subway related story.
When I broke up with my ex-boyfriend Cade, he left my apartment without hugging goodbye, walked down Central Park West, and disappeared.

The weather is getting warmer, that’s for sure.  Today wasn’t especially warm, but for some ladies the summer clothes are out and they’re not going back till the fall.
