I Talk to People, but Only If They’re Nice

Ernesto Madera

I like taking the bus and doing nothing. If you think about it, we don’t really have time just to do nothing. Riding the bus is a good time to reflect and just think about life.

Sometimes I talk to people, but only if they’re nice. There are some old, bitter people out there who don’t even say hello back. I hope I’m never a bitter old man.
