09:40 am - Not said to the waifish woman on the bus today
Largely because I'm pretty sure she had not interest in what a scruffy-looking nearly-40 man had to say:

A. "Nice shoes."
B. "Sure, the dark circles make it look like you've had a long night and you have a small pimple on your chin, but, honestly, with a pretty smile like that, no one who matters is going to notice. So I think you could go without the make-up."
C. "And if you really thought the make-up was necessary, shouldn't you apply it before leaving the house?"

Fun observation. The bus as a behind the scenes dressing room for non-militaristic urban assalts? Did she have a change of mission since leaving the house? I have to vote for the preformance art view.

See, now that's performance art I'd like to see: Guy in business suit gets on bus in downtown St. Paul. By the time he reaches downtown Mpls, he's changed into camo casual, complete with painted face. Even better with a group of people doing the same. Ooh! Or two diametrically opposed people get on a bus (a preppy-looking frat boy/sorority chick and a goth/punk, for example) and by the time they get off they have swapped looks. Get back on bus in opposite direction and repeat.

that would be an interesting opening scene for a film.
