Valuable life lessons. [Apr. 28th, 2006|07:17 pm]

Today I learned another one of those valuable life lessons.

When you're on the bus of life, sometimes that bus has a corpse in a wheelchair on it, and the bus has to stop and wait for the police to come get the corpse off the bus. And you can either choose to keep sitting on the bus and waiting, or get off and walk on the sidewalk of life instead to get where you're going, which is generally the better solution when you don't know how long the police are going to take to arrive, and your destination is only another few blocks ahead.

Life is like that sometimes. But we made the best of it... Life gave us a corpse, and we made corpse-ade.

Hahaha! My bus of life got stopped too yesterday, but it was just because the back door of life wouldn't close. It started again after about 10 minutes. :D

You made a wise decision, I'd say.

Perhaps it's because thoughts of 'you' and 'likes yaoi' are inextricably linked...

...the back door of life...

I don't know if it's just because it's coming out of you, but that just sounds...wrong...to me, in some fashion. :P

When life gives you a back door, exploit it to access the root account and hack the universe.

Y'know, I thought about that just before I posted, and I went through with it anyway. Heh.

But come on, if anyone's back door won't close, that's going to be a problem for us all, ne?

Your inexplicable metaphor has greatly amused me.

The whole "of life," part.

Ah, point. I guess it was more of a bus of death, come to think of it.

Well, death is a part of life, so it probably still holds...

god forbid *I* be the literal one, but, let me get this straight.
today, you were riding a bus, and some passenger in a wheelchair *died*? and the bus had to call the police for them to come remove this wheelchair bound person's dead body?

woah. weird stuff happens.
(that also is a webcomic waiting to happen. nobody would believe it.)

I didn't stick around for confirmation that he was in fact dead, but it was this old slumped-over guy in a wheelchair, yeah, and when I went to ask the driver what the holdup was, they said they were waiting for the police to remove him because they couldn't wake him up.

I suppose it's possible he's only in a coma instead, but...

They'd probably be waiting for an ambulance if it were a coma, one would think?

You never bring enough for everyone, I've noticed.

I might have been able to *use* that wheelchair, dammit!

There's only so much corpse-ade one corpse can provide, you know! We had limited resources.

Linked from nightsinger...could I please put this on metaquotes? This is a lesson all should learn.

:O

I was on a bus the other day and I thought the guy sitting behind us was dead. Young, in a suit, but very pale and sitting in his seat with his head tilted back and mouth wide open. He could've been sleeping I guess, but eeesh.
