(Guess which coffee and water was mine? Enviro-geek in action.)
After orientation, I was feeling great about my first day and my new job and being in Boston. I felt so cool walking to the red line T station... I felt like a local! I decided to put my iPod on for a minute while I waited for the train and I may or may not have been listening to some Ke$ha, rocking out... when the song ended I pulled my iPod out of my pocket to change the song... and my Charlie ticket was stuck to the back... the wind caught it... and then it was gone off the subway platform and into the river. A Charlie ticket is a pre-paid ticket for the bus/subway... and I had just bought a new one that morning... for $20... and I'd used it once... so basically I watched $18 flutter off into the wind. I was no longer in a good mood after that. BUMMER! Lesson learned. I am not as cool as I think I am.
(My Charlie ticket is over there somewhere!)
I just found your blog and I'm super excited because I just moved to Boston 6 months ago (from AZ)! It's great to read about someone else going through the same things I did! I'm on the B line so I feel your green line pain! Word to the wise: get a Charlie CARD! :) Do me a favor and post the names of the restaurants you go to. I'm always looking for ideas! :)ReplyDelete
Zany! I live off the B line, too! I am so glad SOMEONE is reading (and commenting!). I will for sure post about some restaurants as there are a few great ones I've been to. Any chance you're a runner? :-)ReplyDelete
HOly crap... I know that stop!! LOVE LOVE!! (And secretly super jealous)ReplyDelete
Not a runner...but my fiance is! I don't think he's much of a winter runner, though. Right now, we're just lazy. I am considering dropping into a ballet or capoeira class or two at Brookline Ballet School. I'm a total novice. Any interest? :)ReplyDelete
I would LOVE to do a ballet class (beginner, of course). Do you have a class in mind? Email me.ReplyDelete
