A Fickle Mistress–Part 2

What makes you think the train is female? Maybe its male? Did you ever think of that?”

“Oh, don’t be ridiculous.” I swat at Leigh’s question, creating an eddy that carries her silly question into the realm of oblivious absurdity. “Whoever heard of such a thing? A male train? Please. Everyone knows that trains are female.”

“Hmm. Typical.” She gazes out the window as the train passes open undeveloped fields that cry for a new Walgreen’s or condominiums to be built on the last open spaces of DuPage County.

She breaks the silence like an expectant bubble. “You know, I think this train is male! It’s clumsy and noisy, and it is constantly breaking wind with its horn. If that doesn’t sound like a man, I don’t know what does!”

She does have a point. Women are more graceful.
