You’d think after years of missing my train and then starting a sentence with “Well, I might as well just take the…” and then FAILING MISERABLY that I’d have learned my lesson. But no, I continue to do this. I partially lucked out because despite the N train taking all local stops between Union Square and Dekalb Avenue, there was a Q train magically waiting for me at Dekalb when I arrived. Speed is all relative when you’re on the subway. A train that you don’t want to be on is always taking too many stops and is always going too slow.
