First, on Tuesday, I was coming back home on the bus when I noticed the woman sitting on the seat behind me had a familiar look to her. I looked at her more fully (though I didn't stare). It was eerie. It was like I was looking at eofs, but about 40 years older. Hey, eofs, do you have any plans to time-travel back to 2007 Baltimore sometime in the next 40 years? :-D
On Wednesday, I was on the bus discussing with a guy the current upcoming election. He said he was going to vote for Sheila Dixon. I told him that might change by Friday. He asked why. I told him about more scandals involving her. (She had previously been involved in several scandals about giving contracts to her sister's company preferentially, instead of bidding them out to the lowest bidder. These new scandals were more of the same thing. I don't know about you, but I don't like it when leaders waste taxpayers' money on their families.) Well, he said he didn't care who won the race, but that he's voting for Dixon. I asked him why. He said that that was what everyone in his union was doing.
Now, I don't know about you, but I don't understand why someone would vote when they don't care who wins. Plus, I don't think it's fair to the democratic system, either.
Then, on Thursday, I met a guy on the bus that I really liked, and found out he's going to TESST College, like me. I hope to talk with him more often. He's cynical and funny. He had me cracking up so much, I missed my stop and had to walk back a block. It was OK, though. I didn't miss my connecting bus.
