Catching up: From Brayby's to Abominable Snowmen

Hello all, I have been falling short of my duties of reporting ridiculous stuff to you guys! It's been a really crazy past few months. Mainly because we are getting adjusted to BEING PREGNANT!!!!  Yes, come January we will be bringing a little Brayby (get it....our last name is Bray...ha ha ha!) into the world.  We are beyond excited and just cant wait to see out little bundle of joy. Although, I'm not gonna lie....after we found out the news that we had hoped all hit me.  We REALLY are gonna have a got REAL at that point!  So many things to think about and figure out and WE KNOW NOTHING.  At least I am old enough to know I know nothing. 

Even though life has been busy I am still riding the 'ol Metro bus and enjoying all that Houston transit has to offer! Earlier today I posted a few I had jotted down a while back.  There were a few more I had tucked away that I thought I would share with you all.  I have been asking all my fellow bus riders to share their stories with me so I can add them to my blog.  Someone recently told me that there was a lady on their bus who was a daily bus rider.  One day they all got on the bus and were headed down the street when the woman JUMPPED out of her seat and screamed "OH SHIT....I forgot that I drove in today".  She had to jump off the bus and hightail it back to wherever she parked.  Sometimes being in a routine will get ya! 

Sometimes I think it might be good to ban chewing gum completely!  I mean if people are not smart enough or courteous enough to throw their gum in a trash can when they are done.....then they should lose the dang privilege. How many times have you stepped in gum and had to drag your foot on the ground for a mile to get it partially off?  NASTY!  Well as if that isn't nasty enough....some JERK of a person decided to put a wad of gum on the button that you press on the arm rest to lean the chair back.  So I grab a seat one day, go to recline my seat.....and stick my dang hand right in someone's chewed gum.  That was an intentional thing someone did and I just pray that they get hemorrhoids the size of grapefruit!  That would serve them right! 

One last story for today.  But I will have to paint this picture for you because I figured taking a picture would be a little rude.  I got on the bus this morning and there were only a few people on the bus.  So I head down the aisle and grab myself a seat.  I was so excited to have gotten to sit on the inside and was sort of hoping that it would be an empty bus so I could have the seat to myself.  It was just one of those mornings where I just didn't want to be all friendly and share a seat.  I wasn't quite ready for human interaction yet.  Well, with my tacky attitude I deserve what I got.  The bus starts filling up and I am just sitting there reading on my phone.  A lady walks towards me and starts to move into my row.  I am not really paying attention and just make sure I am on my side and out of her way.  She sits down and I kid you not....I was dwarfed by her size.  Now that's not easy to do because I am about 5' 8" and I have some hips on me along with fairly wide shoulders.  This gal was overweight but mainly she was just a BIG WOMAN.  She sat up way taller than me and I couldn't see around her if I wanted to look at someone across the row.  I moved over as far as I could towards the wall and she was still pressing my legs a bit.  I didn't wiggle too much even though I HATE being touched by random bus strangers because I didn't want her to feel self-conscious at all.  So I just sat there and tried not to think about what we must look like all crammed in there.  But if I try not to think of something funny.....I just can't help it. I got a mental picture of the cartoon where the Abominable Snowman is grasping Daffy Duck in his hands and saying he's gonna "love him and hug him and keep him all for his very own".  Then I got tickled and faught off the laughter for a mile or two.  If my life didn't play in my head as a cartoon clip I might be able to act like a growup from time to time.

  1. Funny!! I especially agree with the gum banning and sentencing of the hemorrhoids! Those kind of people who leave gum anywhere for those to step on, get in their hair, clothes, etc. are evil and must be punished.
