Feat of the Day
I had quite the experience on the Metra the other day. I rode the train from Harvard to Chicago with a man who got on the train with a full 2 liter of RC cola and left the train with an empty 2 liter of RC cola. He was focused like a well trained athlete. He didn't listen to music, he didn't read anything, he didn't even look out the window. He had a 2 liter bottle of RC cola and that was his focus. He drank it like it was no big deal he had a 2 liter bottle of RC cola, but I knew it was big deal. He didn't panick and drink it all during the first 15 minutes of the time. No, he timed it perfectly. He started with full RC cola and finished is last sip of RC cola as we arrived at the Oglive Transporation Center. He never visited the facilities. He drank his RC cola. I chatted with him for a bit, but we both knew he was just being kind. His focus was his RC cola and I applaud him for a job well done. I can only hope the next time I ride from Harvard to Chicago I get to experience the feat of drinking a 2 liter of RC cola during one train ride.
