Also, because I was getting picked up at work, I warned my boss about it since I didn't want him to get all pitying and ruin the way we joke about my visual impairment. He teased that he was charging the camcorder so he could videotape me climbing on board for the first time. I'm pretty sure it was an idle threat but I think it would be kind of cool to have visual documentation for the blog.
With or without video, I was really hoping to have a funny story or two to share after the big adventure on my chauffeur-driven short bus. Do I call and cancel or just rearrange and go to the mall after their dad picks them up for dinner?
