Things You Learn When You are Without Car

  • Waiting for the Bus in the cold will make you colder than walking briskly home--Yes, even if it is a longer walk than wait.
  • Bus Schedules are a vast metro joke, put there to mock us earth-loving pedestrians.
  • Waiting for the Bus is like watching water boil--it is best not to count the minutes ticking by. Here are some ways to ensure that it will arrive:
    • Jump inside CVS to get a snack bar
    • Decide to take a cab home, 'cuz you are beginning to scowl openly at everyone
    • You have decided to walk home, and you are half way there.
  • Bill Clinton's My Life (audiobook that you downloaded from somewhere in the dregs of the internet) is infinitely less boring and even soothing when listened to on a long walk home

Additions from Andy!

  • The city is actuallu dirtier than you originally thought (why is there so much garbage?)
  • There are too many strange smells unaccounted for
  • You can actually survive inhaling exhaust day in and day out.
  • Wind chill factor is NO laughing matter
  • A comfortable pair of walking shoes are your best friend.

In 100 years we should all be back to buggies and animals and dung. Enjoy.
