Two Train Obs

So, because good things come in waves, I happened upon not one, but two solid obs when on the train today! This sort of thing doesn't happen to me very often, so I wanted to share it with you lovely people.

On my way home from group therapy today, I sat down on the train in a solo seat. At a certain point, I heard a sudden, honking nose blow to my right. Me being me, I turned to face the source of the sound, and lo and behold, there was a young, bespectacled woman wiping her nose with a tissue. I continued to fixate for a bit, looking at her and looking back at the window every couple of seconds, and I noticed her lip quavering for most of the train trip. Later on, I saw her pull another tissue from her bag, and she lifted up her glasses, wiped both of her eyes with the tissue, and then lowered it to her nose for one more honk. She was quite pretty, though not as pretty as W from my last obs, and I definitely appreciated the obs.

As if that weren't good enough, when I was on the train tonight, coming home from my singing rehearsal, I happened upon another decent obs! I got on the train, and immediately saw a middle-aged, dark-haired woman with slightly smeared makeup and her nose noticeably red. Again, me being me, I fixated, and stood on the train across from her. A man around her age, whom I presume would be a friend or spouse of hers, got on the train with me, and sat next to her. They talked for a while, and at a certain point, I noticed her cover her mouth, and let out a slight sob. She squeezed her eyes shut, continued to cover her mouth, and her companion put his arm around her and let her cry on his shoulder. Relationship goals, am I right? Anyway, this lovely sight lasted for a few minutes, and then she sat back up, and reached for a tissue to blow her nose. She didn't honk as prominently as the woman from earlier today, but it was still a nice sight and sound. They talked for a while longer as she calmed down, and she blew her nose at least one more time, possibly two, before they got off the train. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have found this woman attractive at all, but her crying was definitely beautiful, and a testament to how powerful these feelings I have towards crying can be.

So yeah! Lucky me today, right? Can this be my new normal, at least until I find a crier to date? Thanks, universe.

Re: Two Train Obs

I love trembling lips, not more than unchecked tears, but still. I also like makeup streaks, it shows how much the girl has been crying, specially if there are several stains on her cheeks. Nice obs, finally.

Great obs! It sounds as if you were able to position yourself discreetly enough so that you could observe without being noticed. That's always ideal.

Re: Two Train Obs

Nice obs! That reminds me of an obs I had a few years ago. It wasn't in a train, it was while waiting for a train, and there were these two young women standing a few feet away from me, and one had her arms around the other and seemed to be comforting her, which is what grabbed my attention. And as I looked in their direction to see if this young lady was actually crying, I saw that she was wiping her eyes (I don't remember if she was just using her fingers or if she had a tissue or something). I was hoping that she'd lift up her eyes (she was looking down) so that I can see her tears. And sure enough, she did look up eventually, and her eyes were very watery, and for some reason also stopped wiping her eyes as she'd been doing for a few minutes before that. And that led to the tears filling her eyes and running down her cheeks unchecked. She let only one tear run down each cheek before she wiped them again, but it was still a great obs. I'd almost forgotten about this obs until you reminded me by posting the train obs. Thinking back on it, it was a really good obs. 

Tears of joy are beautiful.
