when she got on the train, i thought to myself "well, at least i'm more interesting".
now... as soon as the words echoed in my head, i was appalled at myself. am i really so sucked into mainstream culture as to have such a typically catty attitude? i normally don't fall prey to such nonsense.
to be fair, i don't feel well today, and haven't for a week or so, my energy is focused more on my physical well-being (or lack thereof) than the purity and enlightenedness of my thoughts, but still. it was a sour grapes, snotty, knee-jerk response, and unworthy. this stranger on the train may well be my intellectual equal or better, she may be a fascinating individual. i have no way of knowing.
i'd still bet i'm warmer.
