Something Terribly Startling

In case you don't remember, I have to commute every day to work.  To save on gas and personal sanity, I almost always take the bus and it almost always takes 40 minutes each direction.  Last night I boarded the bus shortly after 5:00.  Nearly 45 minutes later, we had still not reached the freeway.  Still!  45 minutes!  I felt as though I could have walked home by then.  (Although probably not, realistically). 

Once we were finally freeway-bound, I dozed off, like I almost always do.  At some point in my dreaming, something terribly startling must have occurred because I woke up screaming, threw my arms in the air and whacked the woman sitting to my right.  I mean really, this was so terribly embarrassing I cannot even tell you.  She looked at me in terror and kept asking if I was okay.  Luckily the seats are high enough that I could hide from the rest of the peering eyes on the bus. 

I still can't remember what the dream was all about but I have a vague recollection of a rat and a snake.  Whatever that means.

I may never sleep on the bus again.

I'm laughing so hard right now. Oh the bus rides. I've done something similar, though on a slightly less dramatic scale. Happy commuting!

Oh Kourtney. How I love you. You are just too funny. I wish we could hang more.
