On a bus trip to Allston, and on the train ride home:
the slow-moving couple walking along the sidewalk in Harvard Square, one person moving slightly ahead of the other who uses a cane, the first moving as if she were dragging him
the man with headphones on the bus; he is later joined on his seat by a large woman, also wearing headphones. Since they boarded separately, they appear to not know each other, but engage in full conversation, both still wearing their headphones.
fed up with the cars blocking the bus stop in front of him, the driver surges ahead, cuts off those cars, and stops to let passengers off
on the T, a man with a bedazzled 76ers logo on his hat uses a matching bedazzled cell phone.
the newly-renovated Park Street station leaks snowmelt from above ground onto the Green Line platform.
