Trainjotting Classic: Word of the Week

TRAMNESIA \TRAMM-neezhh-ya\ noun: Waking up from a deep sleep on the train, not knowing what stop you’re at, and bolting for the door in the assumption that the current stop is yours.  

USAGE: I had two Bloody Marys at lunch, then had a serious bout of tramnesia when the train stopped in Mamaroneck and I thought it was Port Chester.

[Thanks to Straphanger Joe, a.k.a. Joe Lunievicz, for contributing the Trainjotting Turns 1 icon we call “Metro-Man.” Metro-Man will be your host for all vintage anniversary content this week.]
