[URBAN NOTE] Overheard on the Dufferin Bus Yesterday

Yesterday evening, as I was heading north on the Dufferin bus with several dozen other people, the bus driver pulled over to the side of the road for some minutes. Perhaps he was negligent; perhaps he wanted to avoid getting to the Dufferin TTC station ahead of schedule. Behind me at the back of the bus, a woman in her late 30s with a bleached-blond ponytail was talking to an older, larger woman who somehow was able to knit on a moving bus.

- I left Halifax 22 years ago, the first woman said. I just pretend to be an out-of-towner so I can scream.

- Prozac helps, honey.
