The Vermonter, scheduled for 11:33 a.m. departure, has been delayed several times, now to 12:11.
I forgot how expensive things are in Penn Station and managed to peel off a lot of lettuce for a big bottled water, Nathan’s hotdog w sauerkraut and mustard, small hazelnut iced coffee, tuna on rye to take on 8-hour train ride, Reader’s Digest and roasted, sea-salted cashews.
I also witnessed an attempted robbery, when a man in his thirties ran out of the restroom shouting Stop! Hey, give that back! A man had obsconded w the fellow’s large maroon rolling suitcase.
The shouting helped. The robber, who wore tattered clothing, released his hold on the handle, then exited up the escalator to Eighth Avenue, suitcase-free.
I’m watching my bags [at my feet] from the corner of my eye while I stand, blogging on my fone.
