I don't even know where I would keep it! I just ride them occasionally.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.

Today. And yesterday. And the day before. Pretty much every day.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

The first time I ever took a bus was back in the 80s when I was twelve and running away from home. Before that, I'd led a weirdly insular life, so even though I knew the general protocol, I was flustered by the details (exact change, putting the money in the thingee instead of giving it to the driver, how to make the bus stop when you wanted to get off, etc.). I ended up dumping every bit of my change into the thingee and riding the bus all the way to the end of the line. I was pretty proud of myself, though.

This was definitely my experience the first time I took a taxi. I thought I had to negotiate? It was a mess.

I'm currently on a bus!

I took the school bus as a kid and have taken buses in other countries a few times, but I've always avoided taking them in my home city, wherever it is I was living at the time. I have a horrible sense of direction, so I love light rails, cable cars, and subways because they are incapable of moving from a physical track. It's very easy to tell exactly where they're going to end up as long as you can figure out which direction you're moving. Connections can be made only at the points where tracks cross, which are few compared to bus routes.

But, I took the city bus this weekend for the first time while my car's been in for repairs and it was super easy (because I only have to deal with one bus moving on one major road, with no connections) and free since I have a student ID, and now I feel silly for avoiding it for so long.
