Harry’s Rush Hour Rides

Seven Simple Sentence Stories is a series meant to inspire the unblocking of writer's block.  What better way to get out of that creative slump than by having oneself write a simple story in very few sentences.  Why seven?  We like alliteration.  Want to take part?  Take this post's title and create your own simple story in seven sentences.

Harry shut his eyes again.  This was his daily routine.  Half an hour on his way to work, half an hour on his way back home.  He just had to be trusting of the rush hour crowd.  Most of the times he managed to get a seat, others he would have to lean against the wall.  And then there were the days he could not get sleep at all, for he could neither get a seat nor a wall.  This would be one of those days.
