The Day the Bus Driver and I became (intimately) aquainted

For those of you expecting are at the wrong blog.  Sorry to disappoint.  **smile**

This story is about one of the most embarrassing incidents of my childhood.

Picture it-- You are in 9th grade.  You are 14.  You are trying terribly hard to be cool. 

You are wearing all the hip things.  At that time, that probably included shoulder pads and leather fringe jackets. 

You are teasing your hair WAAAAAAYYYYY out.

You are "so done" with riding the bus. 

You are not paying attention and talking to your friend behind you when you trip up the steps and land FACE FIRST onto the bus driver's lap.  

This may or may not be the actual bus driver I had in the 9th grade.

It's bad, right?  But your thinking it's not that bad.

I forgot to mention my maiden name -- BLUE.

Enough said.

You said SO much in such a little space...I can think of NOTHING more embarrassing to a teenage girl then what you just described.

Haha.. ohh.. that damn school bus. My bus driver was EXACTLY like Otto from the Simpsons - and his name was Zeek. We thought he was awesome - but now I know he was just a weirdo burn-out. LOL
