*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Forboding


A train barrelled past, knocking him into the seat he'd been heading for. After a moment the two trains seemed to cruise together. He looked out now at his counterpart, in the other train. Small woman, whom he would have judged Jewish without being able to articulate any precise reason why: dark, pretty, smiling to herself, in a blue dress from the seventies--big collar, tiny white bird print. She was frowning at his t-shirt. Trying to figure it. He felt like it: he smiled! A broad smile that emphasized his dimples and revealed three gold teeth. The girls' little dark face pulled light like a net bag. her train pulled ahead, then his did.

[from Zadie Smith, SW.]
