Alone Together

The guy next to me on the subway platform catches my eye by gesturing with his phone. "Hey, Two Dots," he says, smiling, and shows me we're playing the same game on our phones.

"Yeah, I stopped playing for a while because I got stuck on a level," I say, "but my wife showed me how to get past it and I haven't been able to stop since."

We share a few more friendly words, but, like a polite New Yorker, at the soonest opportunity I put my headphones back in and let him go back to his alone-in-public time, as I go back to mine.
