Here’s a weird thing. Sitting in front of me on the subway this morning was a young man I couldn’t take my eyes off. Couldn’t figure out why. A few stops on I realized he looked very much like my dad, not the dad of today, but the dad who’s in my parents’ wedding photos. The fellow looked so young and sweet, it made me smile. I’m sure at a certain point the guy noticed I was looking at him, and I really wished I could tell him why.
Then, I got off at my stop, and in front of me where two men, about 40, identical twins, which always freaks me out (sorry; it just does). One was wearing glasses; the other was, I bet, wearing contacts.
