Note:

Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you today? I hope  you’re doing well and if not, I hope that this note serves as a little pick-me-up during your day.

I don’t know about you but I think that snakes are some pretty cool animals. Did you know that snakes don’t have eyelids or external ears? Some snakes can smell with their noses but all snakes can smell with their tongues. Snakes have a small notch in their lips that they can stick their tongues through so they don’t need to open their mouths. How cool is it that mother pythons will curl themselves around their eggs and make their bodies shiver in order to heat herself up and keep her eggs warm until they hatch. And oh! This would be funny to watch. The Hognose, Grass snake and the spitting cobra will fake death when feeling threatened. They flip onto their backs, open their mouths and let their tongue flop out. They will let out some smelly stuff from their anal glands too! Pretty cool, huh?

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper 🙂

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
