Yeah, I took this during fashion week and you know what went through my head as I took it? “It’s fashion week, bitches.” and THEN lo and behold the dude on the right falls asleep on her shoulder she shrugs him off and goes ‘wake up’ and he goes ‘I’m SO TIRED FROM THAT FASHION WEEK PARTY LAST NIGHT.’ and then she goes ‘I know, exhausted. ugh.’ And I smiled.
I just love this man. Clearly, he was a long shore man back in the day. Clearly, he has a tattoo of an anchor on his bicep. He used to hit on ladies in the soda shop and would crack any man in the jaw who looked cross at his lady. And he is now on the train. And grumpy. (but still… so stylish).
