Ever since MAK suggested it, I've been playing the Subway Game. Generally, there isn't much competition. It doesn't help that I'm only on the subway for two stops. I get on, see a cute guy, choose him, then I'm at my station.
Today was different. Among the usual nose-pickers, trolls, women and other undesirables, there were nestled three prime candidates.
Potential Mate One: tall, thin, blond, mid-twenties, handsome, too stylishly dressed to be American, wearing a dark blue suit with a subtle green check pattern, white shirt and kelly green tie. Reading the NY Times.
Potential Mate Two: tall, trim with a nice upper body, short dark hair, very Eastern European looks, sadly a little reminiscent of Mr. Bean in the face (Mr. Bean as he would appear in a Bel Ami movie perhaps), probably early twenties, wearing black shoes and jeans and a dark gray mock-turtleneck. Added bonus, kept making eye contact.
Potentail Mate Three: short, late-teens/early twenties, kind of a crewcut thing going on, not in or out of shape, very NYU-ish, wearing black Keds, blue jeans, a black t-shirt and a long-sleeved white t-shirt under it. Great smile, cute face (but he won't age well).
So who did I pick as my soulmate for the ride? The first person to guess the correct answer and my reason for picking him will win one million dollars*.
Ready, set, go!
*The $1 million prize is contingent on being the first with the correct answer and reason why I chose that person and on me winning this week's Mega Millions Lotto. In the event that you submit the right answer and I do not win the Mega Millions Lotto, the alternate prize will be a baseball cap chosen at random from the pile of them in my closet and a sock which has lost it's mate.
What will you do with your surplus?
