I love the bus.

Sure, at $2.25, it costs me three times more to take the bus from UNBSJ’s campus in the deep dark woods to the gym downtown after work than paying for parking if I drove my own car, but it’s worth every penny. (Actually, the gas to drive the extra six kilometers probably more than makes up the difference, but that doesn’t count.)

I could wax on about a few different reasons, but the big one is just the fact that once you get on board, you’re going where the bus is going and you don’t have to worry about a thing. Even if you’re running late, you can’t rush or stress out. All you need to do is sit there and watch the world happen around you.

Even without talking to anybody else, I feel connected in a strange kind of way. Today I saw someone get on in an residential area, then off again in front of Zellers.

I thought to myself, “I’ve taken the bus to Zellers before. I wonder what they’re going to buy.”
