Today as I was riding the bus home a lady sat next to me and just started chatting up a storm. She was an older black women who was going to back to school at UW. She rambled on about how she might transfer to UCLA or Boston College. I did my best to stay interested but I am reading ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ and I am right were ol’ Tom Robinson is on trial. I really enjoy my bus rides home. I have a blackberry so I am able to Gtalk with my family and friends, read a book, or just enjoy the beautiful drive on the bridge over Lake Washington with Mt. Rainer in the background. Riding the bus is so much more peaceful that fighting traffic in my Civic.
