Chicago to Boston to Chicago

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Tonight I went over Tim's apartment (soon to be 'our' apartment) to watch 'The Departed.'

Tim: So are you going to do that thing where you point out all the places you recognize?

Me: Oh yeah this was filmed in Boston...I forgot.

So I started doing it.

Me: Ooo! Govermentment Center! The State House! The T!

Tim: The T? That's what they call the train? That's stupid.

Me: It's like us calling the train the el, right?

Tim: No. The word train is mono syllabic. It doesn't need to be shortened. Excuse me I going to hop in my C and go to the S for some M and E. Fucking dumb.

And later,

Me: Ooo! That's the bridge! I can't remember it's name.

Tim: Do they call it the B?

Actually, the "T" is short for MBTA (Mass Bay Transit Authority).

Not the word "train".

if it was short for the word train, i'd be fine with that. i do this sort of abbreviating everyday.
