A response to 'A Dream I had'

It was June 3rd, 2005. I decided to be brave and take the train to NYC by myself - I was still shaky and I went in to meet my mom and Phil for dinner - I clutched that phone - it was my life-line.

I had a belt clip for the phone and just when the train was pulling into grand central I clipped the phone to my pocketbook - I got off the train - as I crossed through the doorway my elbow brushed against the clip and then - my heart stopped - my phone had fallen between the platform and the train onto the tracks. I was seized with panic. I was late to meet my mom and had no way to tell her where I was. I was meeting my brother in law and forgot where his office was and didn't know how to find him.

I just stood there staring. Are you riveted?

Next chapter - the fairy tale.

Hi gregory - I'm looking forward to the riveting conclusion.

I did clean it up the post somewhat. I try to maintain an editorial standard here at Douglas Cress.
