My best friend gave me the gift of a round trip ticked from upstate NY to Western MA, so I could get away from my house for a week. I’ve been out of work on workman’s comp for a month now and I had been suffering from major cabin fever.
So, I’ve been taking Peter Pan. I have to transfer over in Albany.
I am sitting on my first bus right now. I had no clue that any buses had WiFi. This is so cool. I have m MP3 player with audiobooks, my new book (Tales of H.P. Lovecraft) and now the internet too. I doubt I’m going to be bored on this trip.
I am getting a bit queasy though. I think I might need to sit facing forward.
Funny you should ask that. When I moved up here, I hated it and wanted nothing more than to leave. But, living with my sister has improved our relationship so much that the girl who beat the crap out of me most days of the first 16 years of my life is now one of the best friends I ever have or will have. Her boyfriend is like a brother to me. I love being with them. And, I love my job and can’t wait to get back.
So, while Pburgh is nothing like Worcester and I still miss Massachusetts, the town has actually started to grow on me. Besides, the views here are incredible.
Thank god for Google. I had absolutely no idea what “taking a peter pan” might possibly allude to. I too, thought of the pixie that found love. Then I pondered peanut butter. Then I reread the thread. Then, I googled “taking peter pan.”
FYI, for those of you NOT in the Great North East. Peter Pan is a bus line that seems to travel exclusively in the NE corner of the US. http://www.peterpanbus.com/
