Close Encounters

Sunday I was on the subway, headed into Manhattan to watch the Superbowl (OHMYGOD THE SUPERBOWL!! My Celebratory blog theme will be staying up for awhile... ahem...) and my ears pricked up when I heard the couple across from me discussing this blog.

At first I was just patting myself on the back because the reference that caught my ear ("Really? Sugar Ray?") was totally random, but then I began thinking... if they read that blog, perhaps they read other blogs.... Oh shit! What if they read my blog? Wait, so what? It's not like they could recognize me. Hmmm... I wonder if they have blogs that I read...

At this point some seats opened up further down the car and they moved so I could no longer hear their conversation, but I kept getting the feeling that the guy was staring at me.

Which may or may not be because I kept accidentally staring at him while trying to surreptitiously check out the girl and see if she might be one of the NYC bloggers that I read.

Pathetic, right?

So, NYC freaders, if you were on the A train on Sunday afternoon, across from a girl in a bright yellow coat who was knitting something blue... we may have had a Close Encounter... of the Bloggish Kind.

Oh my god that was a lame attempt at a joke. I'm sorry. Truly, truly sorry.

I think I'll go hide now.

Well, it wasn't me. I always wonder about that, too... I am sure we've both passed many a NYC blogger without knowing!
