Is that Hagrid?

A man with a very large gut stepped onto the car of the E train. He’s got long hair and beard that is beginning to grey, and not been washed. He’s dark colored clothes that look faded but are signs that he does not maintain a standard of cleanliness. I can’t tell if he is homeless or just a man who lives a below standard lifestyle. He probably isn’t homeless. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a homeless man with as large of a gut as this guy. He seems well fed.

Surprisingly, he does not smell like some of the vagrant characters found on trains. Nope, I spoke too soon. He just removed his jacket and a waft of smelly body odor is circulating in the train car.

He looks like Hagrid from the Harry Potter movies though I doubt he is as charming.

He keeps moving around in his seat which only disturbs the body odor smell that is layered all over his body.

Two guys who appear to be Indian just sat down beside him. Clearly they have no clue he is homeless. I doubt they noticed the body odor.

He is smiling. I wonder what happy thoughts are running through his head? Or perhaps, he is amused by the various people that board and step off the train?

Hagrid just got off at Lexington Avenue. I wonder if he lives in this neighborhood or perhaps he is transferring to bother train?
