1. I met the Taylor Swift look-a-like. Guys, do you know how unlikely that was going to happen?! Oh my goodness, I was shocked. A few weeks ago, I was on the shuttle. It was a typical day and I didn’t think anything of that ride. That all changed when the T-Swift look-a-like that I blogged about a few posts ago, sat next to me. Like an idiot, I turned to her and told her that I thought that she looked liked Taylor Swift. She smiled politely and said, “Thanks,” and then asked a stranger if she could read his newspaper so she wouldn’t have to talk to me. How embarrassing!
2. WSU is Socially Impaired. For that reason, I have no problem whatsoever to talk to a stranger on the Shuttle Bus. Just had to say this one before I put numbers 3 & 4.
3. Never listen to politics on the radio while riding the Shuttle Bus. This is probably one of my favorite memories of riding the shuttle bus that’s happened to me so far. We were all sitting on the shuttle bus minding our own business when this one happened. The driver had on a radio discussion about Obama and Romney’s debates (I think it was one of the first debates). Anyway, the station had allowed callers to give their thoughts about how Romney would be a better President than Obama. The caller, however, disagreed and sounded like an idiot while trying to make her point. Needless to say, the DJ ripped her apart on the air and told her that if Obama made it back into office again that this country would go down the train. The fellow Shuttle Bus riders and I all agreed with the DJ and had an interesting conversation about how uninformed people are about politics.
4. It’s a small world, after all. This conversation started out because I said that it was cold today (And it is! We had a nice snow storm before Halloween. Typical Utah.) and she agreed with me and told me about her drive to campus today and I told her about mine (P.S. I nearly died because I hydroplaned while on the freeway. It was scary!) and then we started talking about our majors and what year we were in school and I mentioned that I just transferred to WSU and next thing I knew, I found out that she was a roommate of some of my good friends from Snow. What a small world!
5. Last but not least, who needs extendable ears when an extendable elbow is in demand! I cannot count the number of times that I have nearly fallen over on the ride to or from campus because I am standing on the shuttle, holding the bar for dear life. If Fred and George Weasley were real, I would ask them to build me an extendable elbow so I could actually REACH the bar without overextending my arm.
