The Lazy Guardian Angel

The bus missed the mother holding her toddler and the baby in the stroller next to her.

It flew another 100 yards down a crowded sidewalk without hitting the couple sharing an ice cream cone, the old lady with the walker and the teenager texting his mother.

The policeman, the news reporters and the guys from the office of the building it came to rest in front of all talked about how incredible it was that more people weren’t hurt.

Guardian angels must have been working overtime is what they said.

All except mine, I guess that’s just my luck.

    ” . . . how incredible it was that more people weren’t hurt.” Oh, dear. 🙂 Nicely done!

    Big public transport buses are another reason I live in a small town. Cars are a bit easier to dodge.
