Conversation should be pleasant without scurrility, witty without affection, free without indecency, learned without conceitedness, novel without falsehood.

Note:

Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you doing today? I’m doing quite well. The weather isn’t the greatest today so I hope this note serves as a little pick-me-up during your day.

I took the bus to work today and there’s so much about bussing that I love. One of the greatest things about bussing is that its safer for our environment but I won’t dwell on that aspect.

I think I love it when little kids love to run alongside the bus. The look of wonder and excitement on their faces as they follow the bus is priceless. It’s almost like dogs chasing cars but even better. I also find that Hamilton has some of the most interesting people. How do all of these interesting people end up on the bus? I’ve had some of the most intriguing conversations on the bus. I once debated with a man who didn’t believe in global warming and I’ve even met a man who’d just returned from a trip where he attempted to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for charity.

Never underestimate the bus!

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper
