As you know I like travelling, especially if a retro computer or demo party gets in the middle, but sometimes even the mundane daily routine things can produce moments of pure gold.
Now take the humble No.16 Stagecoach Bus, (take it away from me as far as possible please!)
If hell had mass transit, it would look something like this!
When the no.16 features in my life, I’m either on my way to work, or going back home from there, so nothing exciting usually happens, but the less said about a random sample of my fellow passengers, the better.
However, just today, I was the unintended audience for this little comedy nugget; The ultimate embarrassing child story, as overheard by me!
Father and young daughter on the back seat immediately behind me. Daughter is at the age where she asks questions about everything, whether it is nailed down or not. All wordings are approximate according to a faulty brain, but the good bits are all intact, oh yes they are!
Daughter - “Dad, why do we have to have buses?”
Dad – “They get you to places you want to go to, sometimes you can’t park in town.”
Daughter – “But we could go in a car, you’re a good driver. Daddy, why did the police take the car away?”
Dad – “They didn’t take the car away, I sold it.”
Daughter – “But daddy, they did take the car away!”
Dad – “No, I definitely sold it to Paul, you’re getting confused Georgia.”
Daughter – “You’re lying daddy, you shouldn’t lie!”
Dad – “Georgia, you’re confused…”
Daughter – “I don’t tell lies!”
Dad - “Georgia, shut up!”
Moral of the story? Be a dodgy crim or raise kids, but not both!
I’ve sorely neglected this blog, more posts are owed, we’ve been to some awesome events in Finland, Poland, and even Blackpool since the last time I posted, The art of Atari ST demo’s has taken a giant leap forward but more of that, hopefully when I catch the time and inclination to update properly.
Have a great Xmas y’all!
