Ah used tae get the bus home from primary school wi a pal and the bus would sit at the terminus for a wee while usually before setting off. One of our teachers used to get on the same bus and sit a good few seats behind us. We were aware of her but would never have thought that she might hear our conversations. Years later that same teacher told ma pal's Dad that the the two of us had very interesting conversations on that bus. Ah still wonder what on earth we must have been saying. rolleyes.gif
