FOWC with Fandango: Egregious

18.01 (69)

This is in the underground path to town. It enables you to avoid the traffic when crossing the road. What is this egregious buiding. Yes, I used the word, but am still not sure whether correctly.  I even consulted the german meaning, and I must honestly say it made more sense. The word “ungeheuer” means more to me than egregious. I think I have been away too long from my english surroundings.

I am drifting. What is this desolate building in an underground path. Its original purpose was a kiosk. You could buy newspapers, your lotto tickets, and magazines. There was even the opportunity to buy sweets. This must now be at least 20 years ago, although I believe more. It was closed as it probably was not showing any profit. It has not been used since. I often wonder what it looks like behind the closed blinds. Perhaps it is now used as prison cells for criminals. The blinds have not been moved for the last 20 years.  If you ascend the slope to the world above,  the local police station is the first building you see. Ungeheuer isn’t it?

  1. In New York (the city), there’s a long tunnel that runs between Grand Central Station and Pennsylvania Station, both hubs of two major railways as well as all the various subways. When I worked in the city, my train from Long Island dropped me in Penn Station and I had to walk through the tunnel to Grand Central to pick up a subway. Speaking of egregious, it was supposed to be a sort of underground mall with shops and food stand, but it became the place where all the broken, homeless people begged and it really stank. All the shops were closed and it was so crowded that walking was like driving in heavy traffic: body to body. Egregious. Good word.
