Another bus stop.
Today was not an ordinary bus ride. When i was in line to get on, i got a strange feeling that the bus was inching backward; But i dismissed the thought when strange looks were directed at my verbalized thought. It wasn't long before those looks were regressed. As the last person got on, the driver got off for a bathroom break. No sooner than he was out of sight did the bus pick up to a noticable pace. There were few that actually acted in the excitement. As one boy reached the front ahead of me, our addrinaline calmed It's not every day that you see public transportation occure this kind of excitement. Every stop is timed to the near second, but today the ride home from school is the highlight of my week: "did i ever tell you about the time our driver forgot to put the bus in park when he got off?"
