It is pretty cold out there this morning. The old north wind is blowing pretty hard, so I bundled up extra warm for my bus trek to work this am. I was still kind of cold when I stood out at the stop waiting for the bus, but once I got on it, and settled my wide rear into the seat I was toasty warm.
I think I felt somewhat like what a child in a snowsuit must feel like. I had my parka zipped to my nose - my wool gloves (real ones from New Zealand) on my hands, and my ipod was playing a Christmas Harp album. The bus was crowded and very warm and lumbered along in the dark morning and yup - I fell asleep. Good God, I hope I didn't snore.. or slobber!!!
The next thing I know some kindly old gal who volunteers at our hospital was pulling at my sleeve, asking me if I was getting off at the regular stop. I almost swatted her - that's how comfortable and cozy I was! The bus stopped and I sprang off the bench seat and almost tripped in my haste to leave the bus... talk about embarrassing moments!
How on earth will I get on that same bus with those same people again tomorrow???
Then as I was walking into office I had a thought - (my mind had finally awakened). I must be comfortable with riding the bus now! Well I'll be!! Never thought the day would come when I could say such a thing, but I do believe it's true....
See.... you can teach an old dog, new tricks!
Have a great day everyone!
