It’s been a hot minute since I got to talk about taking the bus. And I know I just got my car fixed too, but that doesn’t mean I’m driving yet. There’s still so much to see out in the wild public transportation world.
Man it’s been awhile since I rode a bus. Today, the roommate and I are headed into town for just a couple hours. It’s been long enough now that bus drivers are collecting fare again even. Hopefully I can start making these regularly again!
And hopefully the plague goes away soon…
There’s a leak in the light fixture, water from outside is getting all over the bus. And of course, I had to sit under it because there are too many people on the bus and I’m shy… I think the dude next to me is asleep. His nose is whistling but I don’t want to stare just in case he’s actually awake.
Going into town with the roommate again. Kelowna is currently the largest epicenter for Covid in BC, so we’ve got masks and are trying to stay safe. People keep looking at us funny, maybe it’s just anxiety, but I feel like too many people are disregarding how problematic this is. I do not want to get sick, that would ruin me.
On the way home…
“Hey Blondie! Nice glasses!” Best bus interaction I’ve ever had. Some guy smelling of booze was trying to be friendly. I’m a social person, but you could see my poor roommate just freaking out inside. We got asked all sorts of questions, like where are we from, I lied of course, visiting or, again, totally lied. Like, buddy, frig off. And then, the best thing ever, “hey Red, your tattoo mean anything?”
When we got off the bus, this guy tried to skate away and biffed it on his board. People man, got to love ’em.
That has been my slow entry into busing again. I missed this, people are so odd. If cases end up getting worse here, I’ll have to postpone doing more of these just for safety. Thanks for coming around today! Have a good one!
