Write something that takes place on: the bus.
Today was Family Day here in BC, a recently created holiday brought about by... the need to have a holiday in February. Sounds good to me.
Spent most of the day with Kat and Max, though he did go play with his cousin at her house for a while this afternoon. Topped things off with pancakes (with blueberries and coconut whipped cream) for dinner. Not a bad day.
"Is this seat taken?"
We're on a bus, dude. If somebody was sitting here where the hell do you think they are right now?
"Ah, you've got your music cranked up too loud to hear me. Typical kid. I'll just plop right down then, shall I?"
Nope. I can hear every word that comes out of your filthy face hole. My earbuds are just in for emergency use. You know, crank up the volume in case of dumbass seatmate? Yeah, time to enact that protocol.
"What a beautiful day for a bus ride in the city, huh? Sun's shining, girls are flashing more skin than even decent males like us can politely ignore. Glorious stuff."
Like us? Don't bring me aboard your crazy train, dude.
"Makes me want to hit the beach, you know?"
Why am I still listening to this? Time to bust out something with some seriously heavy guitar. Let's see...
"Just walk right up to the front there and tell the driver to take a hike. Maybe push him out the door while we're still moving. Get behind the wheel and take everybody on this bus to the sand and surf. I'd be a real hero, man. All these people would worship me."
Uh... no. This dude can't be serious. He's just running his mouth, doesn't mean a word he's saying. Right?
"Maybe it wouldn't work out though. I've never driven a bus before. Might crash into something, maybe even drive off the bridge by accident."
This is not reassuring.
"Still be a hero though. Always wanted to die a hero. Maybe today's the day? It is a beautiful one out there. Sky couldn't get any bluer."
Should I say something? I should say something.
"Well, here I go! I hope you're a good swimmer, kid. You know, if we make it to the beach, or... just in case."
