Bopping with Niall JP O'Leary

Niall O'Leary insists on sharing his hare-brained notions and hysterical emotions. Personal obsessions with cinema, literature, food and alcohol feature regularly.

Morning on the Bus

There's a guy reading 'Timescape' across the bus aisle from me now, and he isn't too far from the end. Behind, two girls are practising the trolley-dolly thing for when they're older. An old man with a hat and a box of garden stuff has just got on and wants to sing. Snatches of song erupt occasionally. Now 'Timescape' has been given up for a loud, annoying phonecall. The call just ended. Reading continues. Old man smacks his lips between humming. Is that guy with the baseball hat blind? He has a cane. Girls get off. Fat woman with skinny schoolchild gets on, and separately a sporty, fit girl. Yes, that guy's getting off at the National Council for the Blind. And so it continues as more get on and work gets inevitably closer.

Really enjoyed the writing style of this little entry. Every word had a purpose and a job to do and did it ... Phil
