People watching

This morning as I stood in the train car, I watched a couple sitting side by side. They both were pretty glum. The woman especially - she had that kind of mouth that kind of turns down. She looked kinda like a bitch actually.

So, the guy checks his blackberry and starts laughing. He then gives it to her to read. She takes it without a change in her facial expression - glum glum glum. She obviously is a slower reader than him. As she's reading he glances over quickly. Quickly turns away. Waiting for her reaction. But she's glum glum glum.

Then, finally, her mouth becomes a straight line, and then amazingly turns up and even breaks out a toothy smile. What a difference. Not a bitch. Just glum. But whatever was on that blackberry certainly helped their morning.

Nothing turns a frown upside down like Santa porn.

Wait, why don't I have any hot Santas in my inbox or on my phone or at my door??

Craig, well, since we've been naughty, maybe that means the next naked Santa will be the jolly rolly polly ho ho ho one.

Churlita, unless it's what I described to Craig...

My guesses were either LOLcats or someone was reading my blog.

HOWEVER, now that I think of it, old overweight naked men are pretty funny. Ho ho ho!
