The Metro Smooch Factor (one cent)

9 a.m.    I step onto the Metro train.  Standing room only.  I stand, near the door, in front of the seats that are facing the aisle and are marked “priority seating” for seniors and people with disabilities.  Sitting in the seats are a rather unattractive young couple, twenties or thirties.  He has his eyes closed, his head on her shoulder.  She is faced towards him, her right arm pawing all over his body.  They smooch.  Occasionally he opens his eyes.  Occasionally they talk, but very softly, every few words followed by a kiss or a caress.  It is like they are in the privacy of their own home.  It is like no one else is there. I am embarrassed for them. This goes on my entire train ride; they get off when I do, oblivious to the rest of us, who wondered, “What the hell?”

5 p.m.  I step onto the Metro train.  Standing room only.  I stand, near the door, in front of the seats that are facing the aisle and are marked “priority seating” for seniors and people with disabilities.  Sitting in the seats are a rather unattractive, but different, young couple, twenties or thirties.  His eyes are wide open, they smooch and smooch and smooch.  In between smooches, they both giggle, he giggling very loudly and she a bit more circumspect in her giggling.  It is like they are in the privacy of their own home.  It is like no one else is there.  I am embarrassed for them. This goes on my entire train ride; they continue to smooch, paw and giggle as I step off.

How could this have happened two times in a row like this, when I have never seen it happen before?  Was it coincidence?  I don’t think so, I think I was set up and have not seen the end of this.  But why?  And to what end?

Stay tuned.

  1. You intellectual liberal wimp! I went to the stable to ride my horse twice, and both times caught someone having sex with my horse. And it was the same guy both times! So don’t give me any of your Metro sob stories.

    COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina man was charged with having sex with a horse after the animal’s owner caught the act on videotape, then staked out the stable and caught him at shotgun point, authorities said Wednesday.

    But this wasn’t the first time Rodell Vereen has been charged with buggery. He pleaded guilty last year to having sex with the same horse after owner Barbara Kenley found him in the same stable and was sentenced to probation and placed on the state’s sex offender list.

    Kenley said she noticed several weeks ago her 21-year-old horse Sugar was acting strange and getting infections again. She noticed things in the barn had been moved around – dirt piled up and bales of hay stacked near the horse’s stall at her Lazy B Stables in Longs, about 20 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach.

    “Police kept telling me it couldn’t be the same guy,” Kenley said Wednesday. “I couldn’t believe that there were two guys going around doing this to the same horse.”
