“Local…I want the local!”

One of today’s most frequently emailed articles in the NY Times is a father sharing, in the form of Op-Art,  his 2 boys strange fascination with the NYC Subway. Here’s one I particularly enjoyed.

When your child cries in public, it is usually an uncomfortable situation. Once, we needed to get home quickly from Chambers Street, and I told Gustav that we had to take whichever blue train came next. The A train pulled in, and Gustav (who had been hoping for the C) started throwing a fit. However, the other passengers in the car gave me warm smiles. I guess they hadn’t seen that many 3-year-olds sobbing, “Local…I want the local.”
