Why are old people in such a hurry to get underground?

Do you ever find yourself looking at the old people on the train with a certain level of shock? Honestly, some of these people are going to kick it at any moment.

My first question is how do these people get down here in the first place? Even a young, healthy person can have a hard time dealing with the insane amount of stairs and walking at some stations. Yet grandma (walker and all) manages to make it.

My next question is how on earth do they survive the heat? As soon as the temp begins to climb, you always hear about the elderly being told to stay inside. All I can come up with is that it feels like Florida to them down here. The sticky 126 degrees must feel like heaven (so to speak).

Then again, the woman I am looking at across from me right now looks like she may have been riding this train for weeks. I think the milk in her grocery bag expired two weeks ago. Guess it is easier to get in than it is to get out.

  1. that “Florida” bit ending with the “heaven, so to speak” might be the funniest thing i’ve read all summer. You have such a great perspective and your voice is easy to get hooked on. This blog is great!
