Talking Dictionary387. Colorful Folks On The Train


387. "Mom, I saw the most interesting people on the subway car today," said the 12‐year‐old schoolgirl. "You'll never believe this, but I swear it's true. I saw a fisherman with three fish in his basket. I saw a man in a brown bear suit. He was holding the bear head in his lap. I saw a woman with a green plant as big as she was. I saw a man playing the accordion. I saw a balloon woman with nine balloon heads but no human head. I saw a rollerblader with his rollerblades on. I saw a little boy with a long brown tail like a rat! Can you believe I saw all those interesting people on one subway car?" Her mom said, "Of course I can, honey. I adore that poster by Sophie Blackall. And guess what? If you look closely, you'll see that there are two of everyone!" 3.5
