Tram Observations #153

A young lady traveling on my tram today reached calmly into her handbag and pulled out a small aluminium parcel. Unravelling it like the woman from the Flake advert she revealed a still-shelled hard boiled egg. She then cracked and slowly peeled the top of the egg and started nibbling at it like squirrels eat nuts in cartoons.

Eggs being eggs this created quite a niff, but she sat there quite oblivious to the horror of the passengers around her, gently gnawing away until it was all gone. She then folded up the foil, returned it to her bag and went back to staring into space.

I just thought you should know.
