Bus Entertainment

Man I love bus rides like this, when amusement plops itself down beside you and helps you pass the time. I was sitting on the bus, and this woman and her four-year-old daughter came and sat down beside me. At first it was just average mother-daughter stuff. Then this conversation unfolded that had me giggling for a long long time.

little girl: Mommy, I love you.
Mother: Julia, I love you too.
Julia: I love you all the way to Chrissie’s house.
Mother: I love you all the way to the moon.
Julia: I love you all the way to the moon at night, but there’s no moon, so I can’t.
Mother: Do you love me all the way to the sun?
Julia: I love you all around the world.
Mother: That’s a lot of love for a mommy. I love you all around the world too.
Julia (in this little deep voice): That’s a lot of love for a Julia!

At this point, I just busted up laughing. Kids are adorable, and it’s nice to see a cute conversation, rather than the obnoxious brats you see most of the time. Written down, that conversation looks like nothing more than a pile of nauseatingly stupid sap. But watching it happen was pretty cool. I hope tomorrow’s bus ride is equally entertaining.
