(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!)
