Bus Rides’ Talks

Meeting People on the bus

Talking to them as if you were best friends

This guy on the bus told me he was going through a hard time

He had just broken up with his girlfriend; it was messy.

A pact they made said she would quit getting drunk on alcohol if he quits using drugs

He did, she did not. She found another man, he discovered it.

The rest is history

Meeting People on the bus

Talking to them as if you were best friends

This one time I met tourists from Mexico ( read ma-hee-quo)

They did not know where they were, and certainly not how to get to where they wanted to be.

They practiced their english, I put on my “smile when you do not understand” face

And a few friend requests later, we reached our destination

Parliament Hill

Meeting People on the bus

Talking to them as if you were best friends

There was this gentleman I talked to

Culture, education and nationalities were among the subjects.

He Said he was impressed and I did not look my age

Few parental blessings later, he told me to forever be grateful for my parents

He said : “Hug your mom, and always thank her. She’s done a great job raising you.”

Meeting People on the bus

Talking to them as if you were best friends

Because the bus rides would be long without company.
