Drabble #38

“Have you ever been on a train or bus going in the opposite direction of everyone else in the early hours of the day?”
“Can’t say I have.”
“It’s a different experience than riding with commuters heading to work. You’re all bleary eyed, wishing you were in bed. But they just woke up. Your eyes have seen darkness all day with the only bit of light seen for mere minutes & while the street numbers climb, straphanger totals decline. By the time you’ve reached your destination it looks as though you’ve been riding after midnight rather than seven in the morning.”
