I just returned from New York City by train. I figured the ride would be an adventure, a new experience, and I could meet new people. The ride from Georgia to New York City was cold and long! People bundled in blankets most of the way. Many slept most of the way.
I planned to go to the dining car and treat myself.
The dining car ran out of food and closed early. No problem, the lounge car had snacks and food. Ah, no, they also ran of food , so I grabbed water bottles and Pepsi cans, since they would close at midnight, and a bag of chips. They would go well with the cheese slices and Easter candy I bought at bargain prices.
We had a 2 hour delay because a freight train ahead of us had hit a man walking on the tracks. That was sad, of course. When breakfast time came I went to the dining car for what I hoped would be an elegant experience. Hmmm. Not exactly. It was noting like in the movies. It was even colder, but my food was good.
My experience was basically good. Next time I’ll be better prepared!
Look for announcements of my release date for Cheerleader Dad, a parent trap kind of romantic comedy.
