If I didn't believe in anti-sympathetic magic (you know, the one where it rains if you wash your car and doesn't rain if you bring an umbrella to work) I might be somewhat ticked off that I'd bought a January Metropass. It requires me to ride transit twice a day for thirty days to break even and I've used it precisely one day in the first half of this month. But since I *am* a believer- look! It worked! And seems set to work for at least another ten days! Yay for shoes and bicycles and dry, or at any rate rainy wet, sidewalks. Long may they continue.
