Rep yo' line, Boston!

After a company outting at Whiskey’s on Boylston Street last Thursday, I took the subway home. I got on the train at Copley Station and took it to Park Street. In my mild intoxication passing through Park Street Station, I passed the kiosk on the Green Line level that I pass everyday. For whatever reason, I glanced over and noticed a skull cap with the MBTA logo on it. I stopped myself on the way to the stairs down to the Red Line platform and forced myself to go back to the kiosk and confirm what I saw just to make sure I wasn’t imagining it. It was, indeed, exactly what I had seen. I asked the woman behind the counter how much it was and she replied US$10. I can’t be certain if I giggled or not, but I remember the woman behind the counter giggling at me. When she asked me which one I wanted, I said the top one would do. She held one up and asked if the silver one was ok and I was hit by a moment of comprehension. I realized the logos were different colors, each representing a different subway line. As soon as I realized this, I said, nearly shouting, “No! I’ll take a red one!” Gotta represent my Red Line after all.

Red Line, reprazent.
