1) Coming up out of the bus tunnel this morning I saw a mother and her small (3-4 yrs) child. "What's that on the child's hat," I asked myself, "is it... hmmmm... why, they're skulls!" Yes, that's right. It was Los Tocque de los Muertos.
2) Our driver this morning, faced with traffic at a dead stop on the floating bridge: "Good morning everyone! Welcome to the happy bus!"
3) Watching people putting makeup on while the bus is in motion always makes me tense. I start checking out my fellow passengers: Which one of them looks like they'd be the sturdy reliable type who could keep the other passengers from screaming while I'm trying to perform first aid on someone with a mascara brush jabbed deep into their eyeball?
3a) For the record: Cover both eyes. Tell the patient to look straight forward and to keep doing it. Find some way to fix the object in place. DO NOT pull the object out or wiggle it around. Keep the patient calm and elevate their feet in case they start going into shock. Contact EMS as soon as possible.
