A woman boarded the Red Line train yesterday and began making a speech in a language that I could not identify. She adddressed the crowd with great flair, focusing particularly on a woman sitting near me. Her oratory skills were fantastic; I wish I could understand what she was saying. Every now and then, she'd throw in an obscenity in English:
"Nas ka tu eskay FUCK. Et ma ta BULLSHIT."
On and on she went, gesticulating with great fervor. I listened for a while, then she moved on, making her way down the car to address another group of commuters.
The woman sitting near me said, to no one in particular, "I think she just put a spell on me."
