I love working out, and laughing...reading/following me will clearly demonstrate that. Enjoy.
Only my coworkers and immediate family have seen or know how sick I’ve been lately, fevers, chest congestion, body quaking coughs, etc. I’m on the mend.
I get off at JFK station to take the bus to Forest Hills so I can see a reclusive client, I hop off the train (forehead) kiss my wife goodbye and make my way down to the stop. I dawdle my way there due to diminished lung capacity and finally arrive at the stop.
Standard bus stop with plexiglass shielding from top and 3 of the sides. No one there so I sit, I start completing overdue progress notes until I see a a guy approaching, so I Finalize what I have then proceed to open Reddit (confidentiality and all that). I have a coughing fit and buster says “sounds bad haha!” and laughs under his breath for a minute more or so. Working with some of the clients I have gives you a tough shell…well…now it got interesting.
Buster decided to light up a cheap cigarette and started walking towards my covered bus stop, leans over and says “you ok?” as he exhales his smoke near me…mind you being around smoke doesn’t bother me, but this guys cheapy cigarette just strummed my lung perfectly to start a coughing fit. He pulled back, said he was sorry and kept smoking.
After he chuckled for a bit, he DASHED over and sat next to me and asked if I was ok. I said (nicely) Please good sir, I’d like some distance so that we may both enjoy quiet enjoyment of this morning. He says “Why” and takes a huge drag of his cigarette leans over and puffs it out from the side of his mouth (in the covered bus stop) towards me…as I was about to smack the cigarette out of his hand when the HUGEST cough came out, I’m talking bright lights were seen and I felt whoozy and all while face to face with this guy! (Picture this: http://goo.gl/pBna7z 3 inches from you!)But wait there’s more! I took a massive dose of Mucinex this morning…that’s an expectorant…yup! I expectorated aaaall over his face, I started laughing uncontrollably and as he wiped his face he apologized for smoking near me. Got up, and left. Instant Karma.
