Impossible

Back in the saddle! This morning's commute went off without a hitch, with the computer teacher Mr. Moon waiting for me next to the World Cup Stadium stop in the morning. I timed everything and it's really not too bad -- I have to leave the apartment by 7:20 to take the 7:27 train to meet him on time.
