I had seen it coming down Mass Ave so I ran for the next stop and I made it! As when I got on, still gasping for air, the bus driver said, "You ran so fast you ran past a bus stop!"
me: ::gasp:: ::gasp:: huh?
BD: Did you know you ran past a bus stop?
BD: Well, now you know, you ran too far. You could've stopped a few blocks ago.
me: Oh... well, now I know =P
Also, I learned that my new backpack (The North Face "Recon") has a whistle! It's built into the torso buckle or whatever that's called. Genius!
