Ever have one of those moments? The kind when you catch a bit of dialogue from the television or radio, or hear part of a public service announcement, and at that precise moment whatever random statement you heard seems aimed directly at you? I had a moment like that this morning, on the el train headed downtown.
Just as I got on I heard this announcement:
"Soliciting and gambling are prohibited on CTA vehicles."
Damn it. Now I'll never be able to sell enough tube socks, umbrellas and incense to bankroll my floating shell game.
