Metropolitan Diary: Well-earned seat

Dear Diary:

I had taken the subway back to my neighborhood in Queens after completing the New York City Marathon. As I left the station, I saw the Q23 bus pull into its stop.

I usually walk home from the subway, but I was achy and exhausted from the race. Opting not to add more distance to my day, I hobbled to the line for the bus and got on.

I struggled slowly up the steps in my shiny Mylar blanket and finisher’s medal. The bus was already packed. The driver gave me a knowing nod as he picked up a microphone.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” he said, “this man beside me just completed a marathon. Is there a kind passenger who might offer him their seat?”

Everybody broke into applause, and I traded fist-bumps with a bunch of high school kids. A man stood up, offered congratulations and motioned for me to sit.

I plopped down and let out a happy sigh. Sitting next to me was an older woman. She reached into her shopping bag, smiled, pulled out a white bakery box and undid the string around it.

“You look like you could use one of these,” she said, offering me a chocolate chip cookie.
