Thrilling Two-Fisted Tales of Commuters Observed:

Finished reading my comic book this morning, and had put it away, so glancing around the Metro car. Sitting directly opposite me, a well-dressed young black man, gray suit, shirt sleeves unbuttoned (I noticed this because mine were as well, but we're a rare breed.) He had matching silver hoop earrings in either ear. Not big enough to be piratical, but shiny enough to be very noticeable on his dark skin. What caught my eye, however, was that he was writing on a lineless scrap of paper, slightly bigger than an index card. He had started writing... notes? prose? couldn't tell, it flowed together too neatly and small to be legible from across the aisle. So, he started writing in the upper righthand corner, but without lines, the column of text flowed in a neat curve from the upper right to the bottom left. I don't think it was intentional, it was too organic.
