Jim: BusTed

Ted groaned. Today he was assigned the Special Needs bus. It wouldn’t have been so bad if Big Bird hadn’t been painted on the side.

At his first stop were two very overweight little girls, both named Pattie.

A little boy waited at the next stop. “My name is Ross and I’m special,” the boy slurred his usual greeting.

Finally, there was the little country boy named Lester Cleese, with no shoes or socks. Poor Lester picked at his bunions the entire trip.

Ted loathed driving two obese Patties, special Ross, Lester Cleese picking bunions on a Sesame Street bus.

As well you should. :)

I was hoping that by putting the word 'groaned' in the first sentence that I'd be given some leeway for my use of foreshadowing.

I'll bet Ted did groan!

You know...I'd already posted the story before I remembered that we have an author named Ted. I just used the name for the title.

Now I have to apologize again.

Ted *will* groan. He's still at work now, so you have a couple of hours of anticipation, Jim. :)

Well, I liked it. Even if it made me groan.
