This high school (?) kid gets on the train today, and has three cow bells attached to various places on his backpack.
My first thought was, maybe he’s a percussionist in the school band, and he needs to tote the tools of his craft. Or maybe they’re meant to be some ironic message of teenage angst.
Then some other guy on the train did what I never do: he asked the kid (and took all of the mystery out of it).
Guy: “what’s with the bells?”
Kid: “I just really like bells.”
Well okay then.
Way to go, kid. You do you.
