Smoosch Smooch Sluuuurp Smooch

Today I am especially grateful for the humour of strangers.
Two kids sitting directly across from me in the subway were making out on the subway with great passion of lots of slurping noises. The entire subway car was full of people awkwardly looking away, whistling, inspecting their fingernails and so on. I caught the eye of the man diagonal to me, and he grinned at me in sympathy and commiseration. When he got up to leave he stood at the door next to me and said quietly, "Looks like fun, huh? Well, it would be with someone like you. Not that I get to choose."
I like it when people laugh without judgement, and hand out compliments without expectations.
