I ride the metro every day to college. It's usually very crowded; you can barely find a place to put your feet on. I always spend one hour standing on one foot. There are carriages for women and others for men. I was in women's carriage when a young boy with shabby appearance came in. He was about nine or ten years old. He kept giving passengers weird glances (tell me if there were a better expression) with a sense of irony. As usual, I thought he was trying to show the ego of men since he was among a crowd of women, even if he was still a kid. But then the boy began to talk with others about what he thought were heroic achievements, as they already knew him. He said " I once jumped from the metro on this spot and walked to the station alone. Yeah, I swear .... it wasn't that hard". Everyone looked at him strangely, like "What is this boy talking about??" I soon realized that his assuming pride was just a matter of childhood silliness.
[Good work. "He kept giving passengers weird glances" is a perfectly good and understandable expression. If you end a sentence with a period or question mark inside quotes ("), do not put any punctuation after it. In fact, any ending punctuation should be put inside the quotes that end a sentence.]
