there's an underused english term called "dawdle". it means to semi-aimlessly, almost indeliberately, saunter towards your destination. my mum used to tell me, in her finest catholic manner, that i would "dawdle to the pearly gates if [she] wasn't there to chase me". (and now i am totally missing her)
anyway, dawdling is what i was to doing on the bus. its what i always do on the bus and, i guess if truth be told, what i always do in life. don't mistake my contemplative expression for thoughtfulness. when you saw me i was probably most of the way to nowhere in particular.
