I went to the cafe car and asked for a bagel -- no cream cheese, not heated. The cafe car lady couldn't fathom it. Jelly? She asked. No thanks, I said. She shook her head in disbelief the way somebody does after their neighbor's house burns down. How come she didn't bat an eyelid when the kid before me ordered two vodkas for breakfast? Weird.
