Well, that is a first!

Wow, has it been 3 months since my last post?  Where did the time go?

Well, today I did something I've not done in 13+ years of riding BART. I actually fell on another passenger, and not just any passenger, a sleeping passenger!  An older man who was deep asleep.

I was multi-tasking, with both hands on my phone, ferociously typing away an urgent work email.  The train suddenly stopped and I couldn't hold myself upright.  I fell left and knew I was going to land on this man's body, and already imagined what he would say when he wakes up to the impact.

All I could do is give my biggest smile after I said OH SHIT!  He woke up, saw my smile and luckily, smiled back and said, it's OK.  The surrounding passengers got a good laugh as I gathered myself to upright position.

In this case, really glad I'm female, not too heavy, and appeared to be a clean person.  He took the impact pretty well.
