...you hear the cabbie comments on another cabbies driving by saying "hop-lace".
It took me a few seconds to realise he meant "hopeless" :-P
I just saw a lady sitting on the pillion of a bike wearing a backpack on each shoulder. And I wondered why.
As we passed the bike I saw a boy sitting in front of the guy driving the bike and another sitting sandwiched between the lady and the guy. Both boys in school uniforms. And I now knew why those two backpacks. Obviously there is no space for both kids to wear them. So mommy dear is helping out this way. And suddenly I feel so lucky that we have a car.
On second thoughts, I remember seeing smiles on their faces. And that made me wonder if they feel unlucky about their situation?
