Doomed Love - Really, kind of just for New Yorkers

She told me she was in love. He was an MTA worker.

"Not the kind you see in the orange vests," she said, then hastened add. "Not that there's anything wrong with that."

"Of course not," I said.

"Still," she said. "I know it's never going to work. It's one of those relationships that you can see the end of and know there's nothing you can do about it."

"But maybe-" I said, but she just shook her head.

"Still," she said, with a wistful look in her eye. "I can say, I was held -momentarily- by the train's dispatcher."
