Aby-a-Day – October 29: Urban Cowboy (Hipstamatic Monday)

I love riding the T with Jacoby.


It’s fun to watch other people watching him, and it’s fun to watch him on the train.


At times, he just seems so jaded. “Ho hum, here we are on the train. Yawn.”


What’s really funny is, he knows our “home” station, Broadway. When he hears the announcement on the loudspeaker: “Next stop, Broadway,” he gets all excited because he knows we’re getting off.


The thing is, though, that yesterday, after Petco we had to go downtown to CVS and the post office, so we went past Broadway without getting off.


Jake knew something was wrong. He got all agitated, meowing at me like, “MOM! MOM! THIS IS OUR STOP!!!”


I think he knows the word “Broadway,” as well as what our station looks like. Actually, it’s because he knows Broadway is “home” that he had his escalator accident two years ago last week.
