2. There were three women who caught my eye on my commute. This morning there was a young woman in a white dress. The dress looked light and was textured; if there was a pattern, it was cut into or sewn onto the dress.
The dress was two layers, which I think was part of what attracted me; the top layer gave you the sense that you could see through it - that was the light and airy aspect; then the second layer blocked your view.
She wore a slender brown leather belt at her waist and had some kind of hair band in her brown hair. She was young, of course, probably late twenties or early thirties.
The second woman was on the train home. She was wearing colored pants - an orange-pink color, maybe? - with a white daisy silhouette pattern on them. Her shirt was one of those seemingly threadbare t-shirts. Her face was what I think of as "California natural" - slightly browned, freckled and unmade up.
Of course, what caught my eye was her breasts - or her bra - that stuck out....I can't think of the right word. Prominently. Brashly? I'm trying to find a kind word that also conveys the jut - wait! I think it might be proudly!
In any case, her breasts and that t-shirt made for a hypnotizing combination.
The third woman - girl (under 35) - was in my Metro station as I was leaving. She was olive-colored; possibly Hispanic. Her shirt was dark olive and fit her well, as did her jeans. He reached in some way as I was passing and it created a small gap between her shirt and pants in the back, and I find those slashes of skin intoxicating. She seemed to be having trouble with the machine and I considered stopping to offer help, but I figured she was smart enough to figure it out herself and I knew my motives were lousy. I didn't want her to see me as some creep, so I just kept going.
3. On the commute home, I realized my stomach was burning and my esophagus felt burnt. I sorted though possible explanations but wasn't sure what it could be. Was it what I ate today? Was it the fruit juice I drank? Was it that I ate too little? Was it that I got too little sleep? Was it that I ate non-stop today? (The boss brought in bagels, croissants and fruit.) I don't know, but I just want to sleep.
