Let me set the scene.
Tom and Abby were tucked into their car seats this morning. We were heading to Preschool. Why does 8:30 in the morning seem to arrive earlier and earlier as the weather gets colder and colder?
Anyway, we were stopped at a traffic light next to a very small bus. I don't even know what kind of bus it was. It wasn't the public transit bus, it wasn't a school bus, but it definitely was a bus.
From the back seat the conversation started a little like this:
Tom: "Mom, where do you put all your bags when you're on the bus?"
Me: "Well I suppose you put them on the floor next to your feet."
Tom: "Where do you put the other bags?"
Me: "Well I guess if there was no one sitting next to you, you could put them on the seat next to you."
Tom: "What if you have MORE bags?"
Me: "I guess you could try and put a bag under the seat in front of you as well."
Tom: "But what if you have too many bags?!"
Me: "You could put some bags on your lap too."
Tom: "Why can't you put your bags in the trunk of the bus?"
Me: "Busses don't have trunks."
Tom: "Why don't busses have trunks?"
Me: "Because busses use all their available space for passenger seating."
Tom: "What about a small bus? That might have a trunk."
Me: "Nope, no trunk on small busses either."
Tom: "Well then where do you put all your bags on the small bus?"
And the conversation started all over again. That's just how we roll around here.
