Pigeon Commuter


Yesterday my friend Mike rode the subway three stops with a little pigeon! Here's our convo about it:

me: NO YOU DID NOT
mike: I DID
me: FUNNNNN
mike: so awesome
me: which stops?
was everyone happy?
did it fly around or just stand?
i think if it flew it would have been scary
mike:well, i assume it got on at smith & 9th. just sorta sat there on the floor, right near the doors. then when we got to jay st., it quietly stepped off. maybe he had jury duty.
me: UGH GOD
CUUUUTE
i wish it had a little hat
mike: it was so incredibly well behaved
i know
me: and like a little bag
UGH animals!
mike:
i know
man
me: a tiny briefcase!
just goin to work
omg and a TIE
mike: haha
me: hold on i'm drawing a pic


This reminded me of a New York Times story I read a few years ago about pigeons riding the A train in Far Rockaway.

aww, g. this made me feel good, b/c your drawing is the cutest. then it made me feel bad, b/c when i see pigeons, all i want to do (and maybe sometimes try to do) is kick them. but this makes me think pigeons could be stand up birds, just trying to make a living like everybody else. so, thanks.
