I miss Homestar Runner so much. SO MUCH. Like, my head’s a sploding. COME BACK!
I was sleeping on the seat of one of the tables in the coach lounge on the train because I didn’t have a seat for the entire trip. My Teen Girl Squad tote bag was on the table.
I woke up to find a man sitting across from me, drinking his coffee and eating his breakfast. Awkward.
I got up and avoided eye contact. After many, many moments of awkward silence, he said to me, “That’s a nice bag”. I smiled, genuinely happy, and said “thanks!”, and then we went back to being silent, even more awkward now that we’d already spoken to each other.
But then I decided to strike up a conversation with him and thoroughly enjoyed it. Naturally we talked about Strong Bad and Homestar for a little bit. It had been so long since I got to talk to someone about H*R.
Stranger on the train, I thank you for redeeming what would have been a terrible morning. I hope my TGS tote was what made you decide to sit at my table. :)
