I take the subway. I also eat the Subway.

On Saturday I was on the G train heading south. A man sitting with a bike across the aisle from me said, "Got a bike here for sale, real cheap."

"I don't need a bike," I said. "I ride the subway."

"You do what?"

"I ride the subway. I don't need a bike."

"You ride the subway?"

"That's right."

"You know the restaurant Subway?"

"I do."

"You ever eat at Subway?"


"So you ride the subway ..."


"And you eat at Subway."

"That's right."

"OK then," he said. "Just checking."

You should submit this to Overheard in New York and just pretend you weren't directly involved.

No, really, it was a funny and nice interaction. It was kind of absurd and joking, and the guy knew it.
