Odd things I have carried on a Chicago CTA "L" train.

When you don't have a car, you sometimes find yourself hand-carrying odd things through the public transit system:
  • A bottle of champagne (while dressed in all black).
  • An ugly ratty blue sleeping bag stuffed with all my clothing (while dressed for business).
  • A heavy (50 pound) full-sized electronic keyboard halfway stuffed into rolling luggage.
  • A metal stand (for the keyboard, on a separate occasion).
  • A chair.
I very nearly carried a 4' x 2' chrome and white modernist coffee table as well, but I decided against the purchase at the very last moment.

Commuting expenses:
$20 for CTA (6/26/08)

Total commuting costs since arriving in Chicago: $111.02
