The Commuter of the Day: Bongo Man

Recently, I sat across the aisle from a musician. He had a bongo, and he wasn't afraid to play it. All the way from Penn Station to Mineola, where he got off. He sat in that seat for the whole ride, headphones on, big grin, eyes closed, working out that bongo.

The funniest part, at least to me anyway, was the guy sitting next to him who barely even gave a glance. Clearly a veteran of the rails.

In fairness, Bongo Man was considerate. He did not bang hard on the drum so as to disturb everyone around him. But it's not often that you see a guy wailing away on his percussion instrument on the 7:11 PM to Ronkonkoma.

Note: These men did not really have green faces

Happy and safe commuting, and may you encounter uncommon sense.
