Oh, I am sorry. I have perpetuated a lie.

In my story about the couple on the train, I said that the woman jumped up from her seat, sat next to the guy, wrapped herself around him, and they fell asleep. Soft music. Fade to black. THE END.

That was true, mostly. But that sleeping position is not easy on the spine, so they quickly shifted to one that was more practical and less romantic. They turned away from each other and crossed their arms. Mouths agape, they began to snore loudly. I do not doubt there was some drooling.
