That wasn't so bad. I'll remember to take the whole family next
time. Every time I've gone in the past it has been a situation of hurry
up and wait. This time they ran us straight through. I think Elle was
the hero here.
We got up. drove all the way to Metro's new headquarters at 1900
Main. Got to see the new rail. Nice day. Bit windy. We got to the
parking lot. We didn't have change for a ten. Nat went to McDonald's
with Elle to get some change. I forged ahead. Crossed the street
downtown. Found my way to the MetroLift office. Registered at the door.
Then I sat and waited.
I spoke with work a couple of times. I have to say that hearing
"This is hard." when describing one of the things I do on a daily basis
sounds pretty good. Now I just need to make sure someone kicks off my
script this evening.
The moment my family showed up, we were whisked to the interview and
were out of the place inside of ten minutes. I'm still grandfathered in
to free bus trips. Thank goodness. New people to the system have to pay
half price. I heard that change was coming. I wouldn't mind if I had
the money. Getting bus rides for free right now is a godsend.
I didn't take a single picture. Never even crossed my mind. Such a
pretty day too.
