The first book I ever read (according to Mom) was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. You know how it goes…
Do you like
green eggs and ham
I do not like them,
And, it came to mind the other night as I sat on a 5:53 Hudson Line train and the conductor (not seen the picture) came on the loud speaker.
This is Peekskill. What your step! Don’t take a spill. The platform is slippery. This is Peekskill.
I didn’t think much of it. But, then it happened again.
Cadets on the hop, time to get up, this is your stop!
For the regular train rider, it brought a change to the routine that can be quite routine. Board, ride, and depart. Board, ride, and depart. So, thank you rhyming conductor. You made me smile, at least for awhile.
