I had a lapse in judgment last night. It was around 11 at the union square L train stop, for those who don't know NYC this is one of the most crowded stops in the city. I was coming home from a long night of sparring, I was sweaty, bruised, and one of my eyes was almost swollen shut. All I wanted in life was to go home - take a shower and goto bed.
The L train slowly approaches the station, about 7 packed cars pass by me until the train stops. Miraculously the doors open in front of me to a completely empty train - here comes my lapse of judgment. I enter said vacant train thinking some heavenly being was smiling down upon me. The doors closed.. Am I really the only person on this train? I look through the train window at the car next to me, a group of people are just staring at me seeing what my next move would be. I look directly to my right and see the largest stinkiest pile of throw up I've ever seen in my life. Now comes the longest 60 seconds of my life between stops. At the next stop I exit as quickly as possible and run to the next train - everyone on the train is staring at me perplexed by my lapse of judgment. I had to comment... I gazed upon the onlookers and proclaimed "I made a huge mistake..." Now I fucking KNOW not to get on an empty train - I've been conditioned for it, it's either a homeless dude who shit and pissed himself or vomit.
