Top 10 Realizations When Carless

  1. Bus drivers suck ass!  Okay, so not all of them, but seriously, the bus I was on today was driven by a portly chunk of human being who must have been driving with someone else's feet.  Or so it felt as he constantly accelerated fast, then let off the gas.  Repeat.  The bus swayed back and forth so much I almost puked.
  2. It's possible to get slightly intoxicated from the alcohol fumes seeping through the pores of the old man in front of you.  At 1 in the afternoon, nonetheless.  Hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere right?!
  3. I have time to read a book:)  (unless I'm on the verge of yacking up my lunch).
  4. Teenagers are effin' annoying!  The route I ride stops at Tucson High and picks up a gaggle of these loud, obnoxious, trendy, horndogs.  I don't remember being like that.  Was I?
  5. The bus is the perfect venue for one of my fave pastimes--people watching.  Aside from the airport, the city bus has to be one of the best places to admire, cringe & laugh at the most interesting of human creatures.  I <3 it!
  6. Not paying for gas is pretty sweet!
  7. Your friends will think you're crazy for walking 5 miles instead of calling for a ride, because you just feel like walking.
  8. The phalanges and tarsals are good for more than just looking good with sparkly nail polish, snuggled into cute sandals.  Feet--they're meant for walking.
  9. Aside from being slightly inconvenient at times, life goes on without a car.  Gasp!
  10. You notice things you would normally never see when you whiz by in a car.  I've seen a bright pink house, a lady help a man (who looked as though he was on the verge of death) smoke a cig, a bicyclist bust her face open & a vagina tree.  That's right--apparently they grow on trees:)
