dear subway gods

why is it that 9 times out of 10, when i sit on the subway, the person next to me decides that it's nap time and i make a perfectly good pillow? the awkward game ensues: do i tap this person on the shoulder? move abruptly? or just go with it, hoping the next stop will jerk them awake?

i thought this was normal, but apparently this has never happened to melissa and jude. should i take it personally? am i that boring of a person?

you need to gently sing to them and softly pet their heads to make the subway napping experience as peaceful as possible for the exhausted commuter. thats what jesus would do!

Either that or do what Elaine from Seinfeld would do - Suddenly yell "HEY" at them. That'll wake them up! haha
