Bus Story: So That’s How They Do It

September 30, 2010

Heading downtown on a chilly gray morning with the unmistakable taste of fall in the air, with a layering of pre-winter ganache. When I first board and find a seat, I notice a young woman dressed in a very light blouse, skirt, and sandals. I noticed her because I was surprised she didn’t seem to be chilled at all. She rode along for a few stops with a simple, warm smile on her face. After a bit, another woman got on board and sat opposite the first. This new woman was a study in contrast to the lightly clothed one – she is bundled in a thick sweater, a plain but serviceable knit hat, and warm looking pants. She’s not so kitted out to make one think she’s That Kind of Crazy; she’s just dressed for nippy weather. They ride for one stop, facing each other, and then the woman with the warm smile looks about her, pulls the cord, and exits out of the back doors. And I finally understand how the seasons change here on the ole 54.
