Stuck in traffic right outside a bakery. Baker is taking flatbreads out of the stone oven with a wooden paddle. 
Bus driver opens the door and shouts at a passing boy:
"Kid! Kid! HEY, KID! 
Get me one of those."
Baker puts a flatbread into a bag and hands it to the boy, who brings it over to the bus and hands it to the driver, Driver gives the boy a coin, which the boy brings back to the baker.
Boy continues on his way.

My Drivers

Lady on the bus: "All the drivers are 'my' drivers. I have two sons in bus driver school."

The Name Game

Every time the next stop is announced as "Agrippas-Bippas," I want to start singing "The Name Game." You know, "Agrippas-grippas bo-bippas banana-fanna fo-fippas me-my-mo-mippas, Agrippas."

Today I looked up and saw that Bippas is actually a cross-street of Agrippas.

So disappointing.

Small World

As I got up to get off the bus, a woman tapped me on the shoulder to ask me for directions. It was my best friend's mother.
