The bus comes out of the State's department of corrections, and I realized the other day that my key to the bus's lock is almost identical to the key to my office. I work for the State, too, so I guess they use a lot of the same locks and keys. The potential symbolism of the fact that both keys are the same did not escape me.
The other thing that's just so stirring and odd is the fact that school buses are used for prison buses. I mean, it's all just about human transportation, I guess, but whenever schools and prisons are overlaid it gets you thinking.
Time on the bus has been relegated to evenings and weekends, but that's been enough. It's coming along.
