About a week ago, some fool stepped out in front of a bus on Hennepin avenue and got hit. Rumor was, he died. Actually, I really don't know if it was a man or a woman. I found out today that the person busted their head on the curb, but is alive. That is quite a relief. The guy driving the bus is out of my garage. Really nice ol' guy. I heard he plans to retire this fall. I'm so glad he doesn't have to deal with a death. The latest story is that the pedestrian was drunk and fell into the side of the bus and then to the curb and cracked his/her head. The facts are hard to know since there was only one brief story on one news channel the evening that it happened. Nothing official has been said since then. Nothing on the news or in the paper.

I'm just relieved that the person is alive and the driver is still working and doesn't have a death to deal with.

I think people assume that we see them. If they had ANY idea how many blind spots there really are out the bus windows, maybe they would think twice! Then again, there are those that have so little power or control of their own lives that they just want the world to stop and look at them for a second or two. Those are the ones that purposely wait for the "don't walk" sign to be on it's last flashes and then decide to saunter across the street. Sometimes, I just wanna make one of them a hood ornament!
