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
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
i wish it had a little hat
mike: it was so incredibly well behaved
me: and like a little bag
me: a tiny briefcase!
just goin to work
omg and a TIE
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.
