I was standing in a crowd of people today, unintentionally eavesdropping on the conversation of two people standing close by. I admit it.
I even told them.
One of the woman said she was going to walk to the train station in Philadelphia after our meeting ended. I was headed there, too, and I knew that walking that far was out of the question…especially with luggage, which we both had.
So I told her.
We ended up sharing a cab. We also ended up on the same train — she was headed to New York City as well.
It was her first train trip, first trip to Manhattan, first trip to the cafe car. She was joining friends here for the weekend. I usually travel alone on business, but watching her excitement at every step of the journey made what was a routine trip home for me a lot more fun.
Glad I was listening!
