Out of the Ordinary

So I was riding the train to meet my friend for lunch today... and the line I normally ride was STOPPED! I couldn't believe it because that line basically *never* stops, so this was particularly rare. Another line had an accident, and that somehow made my line stop as well. However, in the middle of the mayhem, I managed to make another friend! She is maybe 35, has two kids (but doesn't look it) and apparently works as a magazine model. We are going to have lunch together next week!

One of my American friends showed me all the cheap grocery stores today. All the stores around my house are crazy-expensive... i.e. the same price as convenience stores こんびに. I hear that my area is "desirable" and that drives food prices up...
