Or, the tale of the dancing centaur.
As some of you might know, the Year of the Horse is ending here in China, so I thought I'd share this story with you. I was waiting for my train one day, and across the tracks, there was another platform opposite to me. Like this:
Like any good friend, I abandoned Tumblr and looked up. There, on the other side, was a guy waving his arms about. "What?" I asked. "Hey, are you okay? I think that's a human."
Like me, my friend was not very sane. And she persisted, "I'm pretty sure it's a horse."
Before I could ascertain the species of this dancing centaur, a train arrived and blocked my view of the platform. When it sped away, there was no one on that platform.
"Well, it's gone now," I said, going back to my phone.
My friend gave me a funny look. "Um. Ads don't take trains?"
I looked back up and spotted ... an advertisement billboard on the other platform, featuring a gold horse. "Oh," I said, laughing. "I thought you meant the human."
My friend made no comment and started trying to power her phone on.
I mean, you can't witness this sort of thing when you have a chauffeur. Not that I can afford one.
Any public transport anecdotes? Share them in the comments so we can laugh together!
