My niece (daughter) Cheryl is visiting me. She usually takes the train up from Annapolis but this time she chose another means of transportation.
While looking on the internet she realized that she could take the bus for $20. Hard to believe huh? With gas at over $4.00 a gallon.
After dropping her off, her husband, my sweet boy Brian, called me up to let me know she was on her way. He seemed a little concerned. He said the terminal didn’t look so nice (it turns out it was a homeless shelter). But he said more brightly, almost as if to reassure himself, the bus itself looked great.
I got 2 emails from her
One said “The bus is called the Happiness 2 and everyone on it is Asian. The good part is I’m perfecting my accent”
The other said “Do you think on the Acela the driver has headphones on, steers with garden gloves and keeps a roll of toilet paper on the dashboard to blow his nose?”
On one hand I say this wasn’t such a good idea.
On the other hand, TWENTY BUCKS!
