At least that’s what I told myself while walking home from the Glen Ridge station. Yes, I fell asleep on the 7:37pm westbound train and missed my stop. Oopsie. Funny thing is I heard this guy getting off the train at Newark saying to his friend, “Wouldn’t that suck if I fell asleep and missed my stop?” and I thought to myself, “Yeah, that would totally suck.” Then I closed my eyes and the next thing I knew I opened my eyes and the doors at Bloomfield were closing. Ugh.
So here I sit at home, blood pumping and a little sweaty from the walk. Oh, and BTW, Glen Ridge, those little gas lamps that line your streets you guys are so proud of? Not so much for walking at night. Especially when the sidewalks are coated with ice. And to the guy who beeped at me cuz I was walking in the middle of the street? If Glen Ridge had better street lighting and everyone cleared off their sidewalks of ice, you wouldn’t have gotten my special one-fingered wave.
