Two days ago at Grand Central Station, while waiting for the train to take me to Queens, I saw my first subway rats. They were both black and they were running in between the rails chasing each other. I know it’s probably wrong to think they were really cute, but they WERE really cute. Many of you out there I know are shaking your heads, repulsed at the thought of vermin in the subway, but I was amused by them. Maybe someday I’ll get grossed out by them? Not likely, unless they are running over my feet or biting me. Or eating my food.
