Are You OK?

It’s January, Mercury is in retrograde and it’s getting cold outside so naturally, people seem extra grumpy these days. So it was a pleasant surprise the other day when someone asked me if I was OK on the morning rush-hour commute. I was pressed against the door and didn’t move my head far enough in before the doors started to close and hit my head. It was a little bit embarrassing and, more importantly, it hurt. Everyone sort of looked at me funny as I made an “ouch” sound but the woman beside me actually asked if I was OK. It’s a bit sad that I think this is so nice and so great because we should all be concerned about fellow humans but sadly, we are not, especially on the morning tube commute in London.
