Magical Mystery Bus

No, not that bus, or the blue bus that Jim Morrison sang about, but the Metro Nashville MTA bus. For years, I’ve contemplated riding the bus to work, but I never did. Part of the reason I write this blog is to make myself honest about being environmentally aware. The price of gasoline the past few years and the hotter and drier weather we experienced this summer convinced me to try the bus. I bought a 20 ride ticket in late August. Today I took the twentieth ride on that ticket. Tomorrow, I’ll start a new 20 ride ticket.

It seems that I have taken the bus more than 10 round trips in the past month, but I remind myself that one day was Labor Day, and I was out of town on business for three days. Tuesday morning I wanted to get to work earlier, so I drove and sat in traffic for thirty minutes. I wished that I had a hybrid, which would have burned electricity and not gasoline. I arrived at work late.

Anyway, I’m proud of my first expired ticket. And it’s going to be recycled.
