AND THEN I DISAPPEAR . . .
This actually happened — except for the parts I made up.
I am walking eastbound on Sheppard Avenue. I am on the north side facing traffic. I like to walk facing traffic so I will see any cars before they hit me.
A bus approaches. It is the Sheppard 84 bus. For some reason I stop to watch it go by. I am glad I did. There I am sitting on the bus, in a single seat, staring out the window! I am not looking at me standing on the north sidewalk. I am staring off into space towards the south and west. I am staring at everything and nothing. How weird is that? I am standing on the sidewalk watching myself sitting on a bus staring out the window.
And then? And then I disappear . . .
