Super-shaky ride, but that doesn’t show much right?
I was going for the 14 train today. It was late. No biggie I thought at first.
Until I saw the board and the expected time was after the original departure time.
While waiting for it I pondered whether I should take the bus instead, since the train was so late.
The train came later than said on the board. By that time I was halfway to the mood of sour.
So you know what? I defied my usual logic and decided to wait 10 minutes for the bus!
I was sour and cranky by then. I didn’t want to go on the train. It wasn’t worthy of my company by that time!
Usually I take whatever is the fastest way home. This time it would’ve been the train. It is, normally, scheduled to arrive home 30 minutes before the bus.
This time I didn’t. I’m kind of surprised.
And to top it all of, the bus was cold. Brrr.
It was warm and nice today. The temperature in the bus home was from another world.
I was drenched in sweat by the time I got home. And the warm season hasn’t even started!
On the bus I always sit on the window seats, if they are available that is. It’s because looking out the window prevents motion sickness and I travel longer than the average person who takes that bus.
Today was no different, until I was 5 minutes from home.
Normally people next to me get off at the station before mine, but this guy didn’t. Normally people shift a bit and get prepared to get off, but this guy didn’t.
He had been still the whole journey. Even when I accidentally elbowed him to zip my jacket, he didn’t move.
So I wondered… What would happen if he happened to be dead? I’ve heard of people dying here and there without people noticing until a while after, but all my sources are the internet so I guess that’s not so credible.
I checked if he was breathing. He was very quiet and still. It was too dark to see anything.
Then all of a sudden I sneezed (I sneeze more than the average person), and he moved instantly afterwards!
I don’t know if he woke up then, or decided to act then. Maybe he is one of those people who are afraid of bacteria, I believe there’s a fancy word for that. He almost flew out of the bus, so maybe…
What would you have done if you had been sitting next to a dead guy for an hour and not noticing?
