This morning AB was supposed to come over around 9am, and then we were going to head to Jitterbugs for 9:30. Her mom called to tell me that the subway wasn't running, even though there were no notices about service interruptions, so she was going to take the bus. What a drag. We called back and forth, making plans to meet at the class after one bus didn't show up and another drove past her without stopping, and then changing plans again as I showed up to class to find the door locked and no one home. At that point we were both thinking that it wasn't the most stellar of mornings.
Later on today I was scanning the headlines and learned that a 30-something man had jumped onto the tracks one subway stop away from Erin's house after stabbing his parents.
