Last week, my dad flew to Los Angeles to drive home a bus that he bought on eBay! Why was he buying a bus on eBay? Because it was a good deal… DUH… and who doesn’t want a broken down bus sitting on their lawn… y’all could be on the next episode of “Hoarders” (I have a strange addiction to that show… sue me!) I was only lying in the previous sentences when my fingers were moving… he was really buying the bus because he is going to be administrator of a new assisted living facility in Brigham City, opening next week, and they needed some wheelchair accessible wheels.
That’s beside the point, though. Apparently having a short bus in your driveway is like an amusement park!! Everyone and their dog were chomping at the bit to get the opportunity to ride in the bus. It was like the biggest thing on the block… that bus! Strap a megaphone to the top of it and put on a neverending loop of that real annoying ice cream truck music, and you’d have yourself a deal!
We were lucky enough to get to ride in it on Sundee night… and let me tell you what… it did not disappoint. Since the lap seatbelt has yet to fit around the bane of my existence, I found myself on a roller coaster every time we went over a bump, smacking my head against the window and the roof, hanging on for dear life on the turns. The shock system on busses are not ideal I’ve decided… either that or dad swerved to hit every single pot hole in the road on purpose. Either way, I’ve decided that city bus driver will not be in my future professions… too much vehicle for this chic!
Question of the Day: Do you ever ride the bus around your city? Did you ride the school bus as a kid?
P.S. Have a great weekend y’all! I’m sharing the following video because it is my “y’alling” inspiration! Tami Taylor… the queen of the word y’all! One can never say y’all too many times.
