Christmas Beer

I know I've written about the stuff I see on the way to work before, but each morning, walking from the train station to my office is really one of the few times during the day that I truly feel alone (in that good way, time to yourself, not the bad lonely way). So, I can't help but let my mind wander and watch the people walking by (as anyone who knows me, I am a shameless people watcher). Some mornings, I don't really see anything that interesting, just the same parade of people walking to work. And some mornings I see stuff that's just kinda odd. Like this morning, at 8 a.m. mind you, I saw two fairly well-dressed young men (mid 20s) walking down the street with two cases each of beer. Now, working in the financial district, my instinct is to say that these guys work at one of the exchanges in the area and there's going to be some fun time on the floor today. I'm sure they'll wait until the closing bell. Regardless, it's not every day you see men walking down the street with beer at 8 a.m. They were very happy about it. And you know, it made me happy. And that's what makes this time of year so great. Seeing guys walking down the street with beer. Merry Christmas!
