This Whale and I Are the Only Ones Who Love Mariachi Music

August 9, 2011

Nothing makes me happier on a subway ride than a group of Mariachis serenading all of us. I’m so pleased by their music that I reach for my wallet and try to make eye contact with other people about how great life is that we have this lovely music by these lovely men in and their guitars and horns and special outfits. To me, it feels like we are suddenly all together at a moving event, rather than just commuting or going to therapy or god only knows why everyone else is on the train, because though we are together, we are expert at being alone.

Invariably, no one but the rogue tourist and I will act like anything special is happening.

Apparently, it is just me and this whale and perhaps whoever hired these guys to play at their wedding who are truly moved.

Thanks for captainkickstand on Youtube.

    This is hilarious! Your first paragraph had me laughing out loud here in my cubicle.

    I did hire a mariachi band to play at my wedding! (It was wonderful.)
