>disgust

>i had an interesting experience today…

i boarded the subway to the uptown campus for lab, just like usual. and sitting next to me was a shabby and worn homeless man. as the train pulls away from the station, i notice a nauseating pungency emanating from him. i was too sick to drink my coffee because his smell was so overpowering… and i was simultaneously disgusted with the smell, but also with myself for letting physical disgust prevent me from a sense of compassion….

i moved to a neighboring car at the next stop…. and please tell me… why does that feel wrong?
