My PAR of the week

Okay so it’s only Tuesday and already I’ve got a PAR of the week for you all. That’s madness surely. My week has barely begun and already im sitting here thinking… why me? What did I do in a past life to deserve this treatment? Did I kick someone’s dog? Laugh at a blind person? Curse infront of the elderly? What did I do???


So anyways my cars broke so this week im having to rely on public transport for the first time in a long time. I can’t actually remember the last time I actually used a bus. So this morning I had to drag myself out of bed at 6am. I had one of them moments where I actually got out of bed and looked back and my body was still tucked up. Like to say I was dreaming. My body looked soo cosy so I got back into bed and hit the snooze button for the 12th time.

Anyways I made it to the bus stop in good time for the bus to arrive. I saw my bus coming up the road and it was a double decker… The excitement on my face was stupid and when I realised that I wasn’t 10 years old anymore I decided I should probably take the childish grin off my face. However I couldn’t remove the butterflies from my stomach as it approached (Such a child). I jumped on the bus and the driver charged me £3 for a single to where I was heading. This brought me down to earth with a bang so i decided to act grown up and sat downstairs. Although I secretly wanted to rush up to the top and run to the front so I could stare out the window and look down the mirrored section where the driver can look up and see you.

On route we seemed to pick up every child from the Oxfordshire region all dressed in their blazers and ties. I laughed to myself thinking back on the days I was supposed to do that. But I walked out my front door…round the corner and swapped my trainers for my shoes and my hoody over the top of my school attire. Anyways my jokes were short lived as some mean looking girl came and sat by me on the seat. She was one of them girls that sits next to you and turns and looks at you like to say “Say summin and I’ll break your face” so I stuck to looking forward. Then she made herself comfortable so I was then squeezed between her and the window. Im not one to moan so I sat tight and held onto my i-pod shuffle incase she took it. I think she realised why I was holding onto it as she pulled her I-pod touch out of her bag.  I wanted to say “I could have one of those if I wanted but I just don’t want one” knowing I couldn’t afford one on my wage. So I held my tongue. Anyways the journey wouldn’t have been half as bad had she not smelt of Rusks? That’s right Rusks? When do kids stop eating these now? Perhaps she had some in her lunchbox who knows. All I know is it made me feel even less at ease. So I stayed quiet and remained facing forward. Finally I could see my stop in the distance however I then realised I was afraid to ask her to move. I sat watching as my stop got closer and closer then finally built up the courage to tell her to move…. Ok Ok I said …”Excuse me this is my stop” in the most polite of ways. Once off the bus I got back to skanking and acting hard. However I’ll never use the bus again in a while…. I’d rather walk the 10miles back to my house.
