Bus Story: Hieroglyphs in Transit

February 22, 2011

More threats of snow this week, and this morning is right chilly, although there are blue skies among the gathering clouds. With the holiday yesterday and the Sullen Teens on “midwinter break”, today’s bus is emptier than usual. On the wall to my right, someone has stuck a name tag. The bus is quite clean with very little graffiti, and when it is there, it’s usually removed quickly. So this sticker stands out. It’s white with a periwinkle border, sort of in a scalloped pattern. The name is handwritten and reads “Evelyn!” The exclamation point is included. So either Ms Evelyn thinks well of herself, or the name tag was written by an enthusiastic fan. Either way, it makes me think that we could all take a note from this simple message stuck on the wall of the ole 54: present yourself as if you have an exclamation point after your name; there is no one else like you, and it’s perfectly okay to shout that to the world.
