On the bus (3)

January 25, 2007

Today’s bus driver was a black man who shaves his head and has a bushy beard and mustache. I was sitting on the right side where I could see his face in the mirror. It was the middle of the afternoon, and everyone on the bus seemed tired. A little boy sat by his mama with his thumb in his mouth totally asleep, head bobbing around with the bumps in the road. The bus driver was tired, too, and he was yawning. You know how your eyes sometimes tear up when you make a big yawn? Well, this happened to the bus driver, and a big tear dripped down his left cheek. He didn’t seem to notice it and left the wet line down his cheek. When he wasn’t yawning, it looked like he was driving the bus and quietly crying to himself.
