Top Design teases my tired Ass.

I spent last night in Brooklyn, so coming into work I stumbled across the Top Design promotional subway layouts at Grand Central Station. I don’t know why, but somehow having to rush past several comfortable looking couches surrounded by mod furniture and interesting lighting to crush myself into a packed shuttle train really annoyed me. I didn’t see a single person taking the time to sit down on any of the seating that was taking up valuable walking space on the platforms. The couches only served as a painful morning reminder that I not only didn’t have time to brush my hair this morning, I also don’t have time to sit and rest – even on a couch that is two feet away from me. Sad.
