The subway ride home from work was really crowded today. So I was forced to stand, my arm stretched to hold the upper rail.
The gentleman sitting on the bench directly in front of me dozed off. His head began to dip lower and lower. Eventually the top of his head hit me in the stomach.
He jumped. I I jumped. But he didn’t wake up completely, so pretty soon his head fell back down and hit me in the stomach. This continued for another two subway stops.
Then I moved my purse so it hung in front of my stomach. The next time his head dipped, it encountered cold, black leather.
That seemed to do the trick. He woke up, stood up and got off the train at the next stop.
Heads up, buddy.

Today I retire a trusted member of my small business —
My Jack Georges Milano laptop bag in vibrant green leather.
For more than a decade, this briefcase has accompanied me on my travels in these United States, Europe and Asia.
I have overstuffed it, crushed it, slept on it — and it has always looked as good as new.
That bag was a great conversation starter at any airport gate, airport restaurant, airplane row, hotel lobby — basically anywhere. Folks noticed my Jack Georges. I’m sure I sold a bunch of them.
But today my Jack got to stay home and sleep in…and instead I brought along —
My new briefcase by McKlein. In bright orange.
Because I’ll admit it —
I like the attention.
