A Lively Butterfly Brooch

Dear Diary:

It’s a typical late spring Thursday morning commute on a 5 train headed downtown from 59th street but standing out among the tableau of crammed commuters is a middle-aged man dressed in standard business casual attire, his blue button down shirt unremarkable but for a large, fantastically colored butterfly brooch affixed to the back of his shirt just below the collar.

An odd location to place a brooch, I think to myself, but this is New York and I’ve seen far stranger things in the subway.

“Surely it can’t be a real butter…” but before I can finish my thought a fellow passenger touches the brooch and the butterfly takes flight, to the surprise of the man in the blue shirt and much to the delight of those around him.
