The First Trip

After 61 days, I finally rode the bus tonight.

The mood was more friendly than I expected.

The driver smiled, but not too much.

It was a smile that sad "I'm sorry".

I accepted the smile apology by not injuring the driver.

People on the bus seemed a bit awkward.

No one was used to trip.

The bus is a new experience again.

Everyone smiled at each other.

Hooray for bonding with strangers.

One lady was transporting a cake.

These are the parking stubs I saved - there were more.

wouldn't it be hilarious if she had a cake for fellow passengers to celebrate being able to take the bus again???

That's pretty lucky. Future Mrs Imaginary Reviewer's parents won't have their bus service back until April, apparently.
