Reminiscing about WW1

16 Oct

Sorry, i have not written in a while. Been dealing with a lot of personal stuff in the last few week. And let me tell you, when it rains it pours. But you have to just pick up and move on with your life, think positively and keep your mind off of things! But either way i am back…i think…
So i was on the subway the other day reading my book. I am currently reading Follett’s “Fall of giants”, and i am quite enjoying the book. A gentleman sat down next to me and proceeded to ask me what i was reading and what the book is about. I explained that is a book about lives of people in several different countries and how their lives were affected by WW1. The man proceeded to nod and tell me the story about the time when he was living through WW1. Now you would imagine that this man was at least 90 years old, but here is the thing, i think he was about 40 years old or so. I was very confused, proceeded to nod at everything he was saying while planning my exit strategy. apparently WW1 was a very tough time for this man. He also asked me if i came there often, at which point i clarified if he meant if i come on the subway often. Of course i told him that i come here pretty much every day. We said our goodbyes and he said that he hopes to see me again. I am sure next time we will talk about WW2. So… what weird conversations have you had with people on the subway? Definitely do share!
