How time flies
Time really flies. A Long Phone Convo Which Did Not Seem Long (at least to me)
I was talking to Tony on phone for quite a while just now. At the end, I was stunned to find out that we talked for half an hour. That should be the first time ever that I talk on the phone for so long.A Long 30-seconds Wait That Supposedly Is Not Long (at all)
I take bus to school every morning. To reach the bus stop that is across the road, I have to bypass a T-junction. Basically, I have to cross a road, with traffic lights, on the same side of the road in order to be able to get to the other side of the road. That means I have to wait for the green man twice.
So this morning, I was waiting for the first green man, and 30 metres away is my bus which is stuck at a traffic light crossing that is before the bus stop. (The T-junction is after the bus stop, according to my orientation...) Then, both the bus and me started to move at the same time as the traffic light where the bus was turned to green light (or otherwise, red man) and the one where I was turned to green man (or otherwise, red light).
After I crossed, I was clicking the button like mad as the bus was already at the stop and a lot of people were boarding. The second green man has to appear before everyone has boarded the bus, except me! At the end, the green man appeared after everyone has boarded and the bus has left the bus lane... It was just about 30 seconds total!
